Magpie tale #35




Willow hosts at weekly meme



You will die this Autumn
while the earth breaks forth
in glorious displays of death
or sleep
And the rain will come
as it always does this time of year
as will my tears
carving ridges into my heartbroken
being
And freezing cold will set in
taking the last remnants of beauty away
I brace myself for the frosty nights ahead
when I will taste the bitter cold of your absence
and my joy will be darkened
like the short days of this season
Let it be a cloudy, windy day
when you return
your breath to the Creator
when you leave me like the robins
whose songs I will long to hear
 For  it will already be desolate
winter
in my heart

  1. I can so relate to this not on the love part but mainly on the winter part. My first Magpie #19 is kind of along these lines and then I try really hard to change my thinking and Magpie #62 is a little better. I loved your poem. It spoke to me.

  3. Oh dear! Such loss in this lament. You really have truthfully expressed the desolation.

    PS. thank you for the gift of this little poem
    "as the leaves fall like years
    yes the truth
    makes winter easier"

    Then comes spring and renewal, my wish for you.
