Good Mourning: Shadorma

GOOD MOURNING

Deep sadness
A moment later
Peace returns
Let it be
Everything falls into place
As if it was meant

Leftovers

LEFTOVERS

Trying to use up
These bits and pieces
She never finished

Cornflour
Paper tissues
(Bless you)

I don’t use much of either
See, me, I prefer cotton
Prefer wholemeal

It’s eighteen months
And there’s plenty left yet
She doesn’t need them now

Miss you every day
Though my glass is half full
It is half empty

In Mourning Still: Shadorma

IN MOURNING STILL

He ventures,
“Here’s a suggestion:
Share laughter
Together.”
She points to the iron gates.
The sign reads “Keep Out”

Lost love
Long past days
Present echoes
Whisper among the trees
Old news

Ladybird

LADYBIRD

Wings folded away
Ladybirds with just their legs
Can still move about

Dear Ones Lost

DEAR ONES LOST

Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Where are you now?

Missing you terribly
But that’s our fault
Not yours

Or is it?

Or else not?

For you are I
As I play you
In your absence

Asking where am I?
Asking where am I?
Asking where am I?

So What

SO WHAT

Go to hell? No probs
Been there already
Came back intact
A few hot baths
A few clockticktocks
And good as new

As the bell rings
For the next round
And round and round
And round we go
Waving, smiling
See you there

Waving back

Smiling back

Presenility

PRESENILITY

Remembering
What it is one forgot
Halfway down the stairs
Is a welcome improvement
On only remembering later

No, no all is not yet lost
While what one lost
Is yet remembered
For a little while

Penury (Republished)

PENURY

We found love’s treasure
Seems we’ve spent it and sadly
All that’s left is change
