I’m a little late joining the party at NaPoWriMo

It’s already Day 10! Today we are writing ‘portrait’ poems

Dag (not Dad)

Blue eyes that sparkled
And a smile –
Always a smile

He whistled tunes
While working or
Reading or doing nothing

The house was happy
When he was home
Quite dull when he wasn’t

Now I stand looking at a stranger
Stretched out before me
Eyes closed, straight line mouth

No music
