Bunch Of Roses

I walk along his grave,
the same obsidian headstone
gleaming in sun
his name carved in archaic letters
and the dates
of his death and birth.
I bend down
a necessity
rather than revere
I lay down the roses
on his non recent grave
years long habit
rather than respect
and then,
i walk away....................

    This poem caught me unawares. I was expecting a flowery poem but found a powerful but subdued testimony of bereavement. Evocative and well written.

    Very expressive poem and penned in a superb way..

  • Nikita Dutt (8/6/2013 5:26:00 AM)

    Lucifera reading it i can feel the abject misery behind the words. This is what life is about, you start something to remember someone and then it becomes a ritual very well expressed.

    very touching dear Lucifera. I have had the same experience.

  • Heather Wilkins (7/29/2013 11:17:00 AM)

    sad but beautifully written

    I don't really read poets bios but indulge in their work and that's how I real get to know them, to know how they see things and learn from their wisdom..

    Well penned sad poem, even though the reason is unknown to us but the poem is great.
    Siya_! !

    years long habit
    rather than respect
    and then,
    i walk away....................
    Just couldn't grasp the reason. Your biography is also a bit too sketchy. A little more elaboration, a little note, perhaps?
