Abandoned Nest - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

abandoned nest
on a wire
autumn wind

abandoned nest
on a wire
this loneliness in me

applying lipstick
she discovers the cracked voice
of teenage son

summer breeze
leaves dance
with light

    This brings a gloomy picture of frustration and solitude! It's really a sad notion John. (Report)Reply
