The prodigal poem is home

The prodigal poem


Whilst surfing on the interweb

I found a long lost poem

There you are my old friend

you wandered far from home

I never dreamt we would meet again

But like the proverbial prodigal son

I recognised you even though

it seems you changed your name

a different  moniker signed you off

as if they were  your dad

what a cacophony  of emotions

I went through, from rage to utter joy

Being reunited so beholden,

to have you home my boy

Hi Ghaz I have a poet poacher's jacket... the problem is it has very deep pockets and I have very short arms!

I chip all of my poems now, so if they get pilfered I can track them, and the perpetrators down and reap my revenge.

Thanks for commenting

I think most poets have had the experience of coming across pieces they forgot about completely. Your poem is a nice capture of what it feels like to come across such a long-lost poem.
