The Storm

SOLC: Day 21

Last year we went through the process of both selling our home of 16 years and buying a new house.  Everything was going well until a problem occurred between the IRS and the mortgage company.  We were caught in a battle between the two giants.  This was not like an episode of Property Brothers where all is complete in 30 minutes.  In the meantime our house was sold and we were faced with the prospect of not being able to complete the purchase of our new home.  Needless to say, this was an incredibly stressful time in our lives.  We didn’t know what was going to happen.  Our family was sent into a turmoil as my boys (one had just graduated from College) had to stay at my sister’s house, one dog had to stay with friends in another town, and my husband, daughter, little dog and I stayed on a sofa bed in my mother’s house.  This uncertainty continued for two weeks until we received the call that our closing was happening the next day.  One day during this turmoil, I put my feelings into words.  This is the result.

  1. I like how your poem breaks from its list of descriptive words to repeat “Lost in a storm” and add “at the end of a rope.”

    We are still living with a bad property situation in which the title company should have made it clear that the title we were buying had an extremely fuzzy lot line that affects the value and buildability of the plot. So frustrating, and we little folk are so powerless to do anything about it.

  2. That must have been so stressful waiting to see if you were able to move into your new home. Your poem with the words stacked one on top of the other, was so vivid and clear.
    I was happy to hear you were able to move in.

    Did you write a new one that ends with hope and good news?
