.. Farewell - Poem by Frederick Kesner


grief belies this despised state
hunched upon shuffling feet
pondering the crunch of
browned leaves

grief burrows this desiccated soil
hidden beneath scurrying paws
forgetting the crush of
billowy waves

grief bruises this demented breath
hollowed out withered lips
releasing the fluttering wings
cotton-downed doves

grief bellows across horizons
herding the flock from grazing
shackling the gates
embracing the nightfall
