Reunion..... - Poem by John Tansey

Dedicated to my ex-wifes grandmother

Upon the anniversary of his passing
that worm-holed the world
with a warped space,
leaving
the black hole heart
of one woman,
agape
with grief
and parted from the star of her life;

In the privacy of her longing,
she succumbed
to that portalled space,
aligned by stars,
that pulled her,
as earth herself
on the anniversary of his death
toward the gravity of their love
and in the orbit of their final place.

    A beautifully-written and sensitive piece, John. The title is so apt.
