The Seventeenth Day Of November ~ - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

It was just another Friday in November
The streets of Seattle wet with rain
Grey clouds hanging by thin threads
November colder than ever~~filled with dread
The phone ringing was almost echo-like
My father's voice~a quiver~on the line
'your mother is now at peace with her maker', he said
Hence came a pause as eternity~much like the end of time!


The streets of Seattle were flooded with rain
