Good bye, Mama
I'm flying away
I hope to hide
This is the first verse to a longer poem with many verses. It is a persona poem written in the voice of a turkey. Now, why would a turkey want to leave home for the holiday? Your poetry challenge for today is to write the next verse. Who would the turkey send a shout out to next? Where would he go?
I took this picture of the turkeys in Franconia, NH when I attended a poetry workshop at The Frost Place. It is a lovely place to learn more about poetry.
