April 30 Poem-a-Day Prompt

April 30 prompt from Poetic Asides:

For today’s prompt, write an “after leaving here” poem. This poem could be about leaving an actual place, a relationship, or even this challenge. We leave many places and things every day without much ado, including rooms, vehicles, people (both those we know and complete strangers), etc. And to make this poem even more interesting is that there is presumably something that will be done after the leaving, whether that’s something fun, sad, hopeful, or whatever.

  1. Jerry says:


    We left.
    My wife and I left.
    We left the mountains,
    And forests,
    And waterfalls.
    We left the moose,
    And grizzlies,
    The whales and sea lions,
    The glaciers,
    The eagles and ravens.
    We left the Tlingit,
    Denali, and Mt. McKinley.
    We left the sled dogs,
    Iditarod, Susan Butcher, and Jeff King.
    And Fairbanks and Anchorage.
    We left Sitka and Ketchikan, and Juneau,
    And the Red Dog Saloon.
    But, most of all,
    We left the friends who traveled with us,
    Who shared the fun and adventure,
    And excitement.
    Yes, we left Alaska,
    But Alaska
    has never left
