New Poem: Missing You 1
Off to a good start, I just wrote (and sent off) a "missing you" themed poem for Blue Mountain Arts. I took the advice in the guidelines and thought about how lonely it was for me when I was serving in the Air Force in Indonesia. The deployment was full of amazing and meaningful experiences, but every day, no matter how interesting, was touched by an undercurrent of sadness, longing, and loneliness. The nights were worse. I tried not to dream too much as the USS Abraham Lincoln (on which my team was billeted) gently rocked me to sleep.
