A BLESSING AFTER LOSS

To you, may peace and love abound
As the slow days unfold
As the clouds uncover the sky
And the stories to be told.

There, but his quiet shadow,
Where once his eyes and smile
Said everything about you
His bold and faithful child.

AGAINST THE WINTER

When the fire begins
to fade to ash and embers,
the frosted air of winter
finds its way in through
the gaps beneath the door
and around the ill-fitting
windows; but keeping
the flame alive, all our
winters are kept at bay.

ENVIED ROMANCE

The silence sat there, alone but for that
envied romance that tore the thorns from the
good ground of love and joined heart and hands
so that they held on together for the last
lingering breath, the final, contented sigh
that signed off on the race run and won.
