When death enters

IMG_7859 (2)

We have no words of welcome for you here.

Did you take a wrong turn, forget the address?

What purpose in taking this woman, this mother, this wife?

What twist of fate have you tapped into?

Why slip in to take this life without a whisper?

We’re left to make sense of your choices.

To find purpose in a life without.

To recreate faith and hope.

That’s what humans do

after you leave.



Weekly photo challenge: Foreign

The watery reflection of a fall day seems a bit surreal, a bit foreign, especially tonight with Hurricane Sandy gearing up to strip every last reminder of fall from the trees. By Wednesday morning, bare branches will be the norm, if not downed trees.
