SoCS: ring

I’ve been out all day at the bicentennial of my hometown so this will be a short SoCS post.

When I saw that Linda’s prompt was ring, what came to mind was the poem I wrote about taking off my father’s wedding ring after he died. The first anniversary of his death was Wednesday. The poem was published this spring by Wilderness House Literary Review here.

    1. Thank you so much, JoAnna. In workshopping the poem, some felt the end was too sentimental but I ultimately included it because it was the truth. I wrote this poem only a couple of weeks after Paco’s death, so everything was still raw.
