I walk along his grave,
the same obsidian headstone
gleaming in sun

    As time goes by the sadness is always waiting for those flowers but the memories live on, tactfully written..regards (Report) Reply

    This poem caught me unawares. I was expecting a flowery poem but found a powerful but subdued testimony of bereavement. Evocative and well written. (Report) Reply

    Lucifera reading it i can feel the abject misery behind the words. This is what life is about, you start something to remember someone and then it becomes a ritual very well expressed. (Report) Reply

    I don't really read poets bios but indulge in their work and that's how I real get to know them, to know how they see things and learn from their wisdom..

    Well penned sad poem, even though the reason is unknown to us but the poem is great.

    years long habit
    rather than respect
    and then,
    i walk away....................
    Just couldn't grasp the reason. Your biography is also a bit too sketchy. A little more elaboration, a little note, perhaps? (Report) Reply
