Day 4 – the theme of loss continues

I wasn’t planning to write about this topic again. However, things often bubble to the top unasked — especially when you’re distracted working on other things.

*****

we are all haunted by the presence of absence

my umbrella is too small
to keep off the storm
my suitcase too small
to hold all my sadness
when the crows come pecking
i can’t scare them off

up to my eyes in water
up to my ears in salt
wings try growing from my back
but i refuse to let them
so i am always surrounded
by the sound of falling feathers
