I Am

The chair is empty
I want it filled

Silly, I know,
but I am lonely

This poem was written in response to Musical Notes prompt #1: I am… I said by Neil Diamond.

  1. I hope it is not empty for long. It was good to see your name in my inbox. It looks like you have been away for about as long as long I have.

    I love that Neil Diamond song.

  2. *sigh*
    no…not so silly…

    Such emotion captured in the starkness of a few words. (I s’pose thus is the challenge of 15 words or less.)

    Oh, and…by the way…soon you will have a whole room of filled chairs! Happy New School Year, my friend!

  3. Oh Richard this is powerful. Suggests so many possible scenarios and levels of emotions. And you thought 15 words would be a challenge? You cut through it like butter. And I am so very glad to see you here,


    • Elizabeth, thank you so much! Fifteen words is a challenge, but a good one. It provides focus. Thank you, again. I’ll be listening to more songs, and, I hope, writing more poems.
