Symbol of Life on the verge

~ Dearest Father…


~ Dearest Father
Your death 
Left a void
An eternal pause 
Beyond the eithers
Beneath the waters deep
Or within the earth you sleep
A void.

~ FLowers for Mother


Flowers for Mother

 

She picked the petals
One by one,
Tossed them ‘neath
A sultry sun,

 

A waft of wind
Carried them away;
As Mother
Received an earthly bouquet

 

A sorrow-filled daughter,
Here, earthbound
Picked herself
Up from the ground…

 

Recalling words her Mother
Once said:

 

“Death has no hold on memories,
when I am gone, that’s where you’ll find me;
the mind is a garden full of delight –
search my daughter with all your might,
and cast away all thoughts of sorrow
we’ll meet again in tomorrows, morrow”.

~ To Loss


Loss perched

Perched upon my days

As I walked through life

In a daze

Enduring what could not 

Be changed

Mothers floppy hats
Laced gloves line little fingers

Womanhood pretended

Uprooted Oak tree

Broken branches lie, decay

Roots lost to the winds

~ Greed


~ Greed
When Greed the heart does consume

Logic finds no room

Distorted – nay, falsehoods – proclaimed 

From forked tongues without restrain

All Dignity cast aside

Void of substance, alter pride

And family, friends stand in awe

Observing the circus one and all
When Greed the heart does consume

Logic finds no room.
