things Left behind

by electrictiger

the derelict hammer, a puddle, her torn green dress.
a window, drawn blinds, someone's soft singing.
memory of mother's clothesline in summer, socks
dangling like little flags. the taste
of honeysuckle, once bright
& sweet on unfurled tongues;
the alleyway she died in,
a closed eye.

this murmur,
a candle's flame
lapping night;

nothing else.

During the storms my mind had thought about you and all the people effected by the storms. I wondered if you were safe. I am so glad you are. The storms passed me to the north and we got little rain from them. My wife is one of those people that storms scare the living hell out of. I have always been what ever happens, happens.

This poem reminds me that there are so many things to be left behind, all the destruction such storms can cause and we never live through them untouched. Be well Chris... BWP... James...
