One Way Or Another

04 Sep

Days In The Blackberries Field

wind whines
breaking branches
instead of sobs
*
silent witnesses
pile of crumpled wipes
on the nightstand
*
from the makeup kit
she pulls out a daily smile
before going out
*
after departure
only gloomy sky remains
waiting for a spring
*
love shot
right through the heart
grime on a shirt

For Carpe Diem #553, Grief

    I enjoyed all of these. Connecting grief with everyday rituals after the loss of a love was a clever take on the prompt.

    They were all totally great , this:

    from the makeup kit
    she pulls out a daily smile
    before going out

    moved me most of all.
