Heartsick


Standing among the inconsolable.
Shoulders meet, faces greet.

Unshedded tears gasping for air.
Painted with the buds of sweet smells
Reminiscing of a life that once stood
among this vibrant cluster of hues.

Her eyes reflecting
Shades of yesterdays
hazed over with red, white and blue.

My arm wraps around her,
a simple hold releases
the sea of tears crashing
into her hands.

All we've known, oceans apart.
All we are, side by side.

Words never uttered
Everything is spoken.

Only love will keep her afloat.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
