For Poets United Midweek Motif ~ Reunions ~ Returns ~ A Union Has A Reunion ~


In  Life 

a lost slipper found under the bed
forming the pair, comfortably walking away

elderly man and wife leaving for heaven
minutes apart

birds excited choral twittering
filling the foliage,clutching holding on
to twigs, soon silent reunited till dawn

every sunset at the horizon, behind the range
every raindrop's  joyful merging in the ocean
every fruit ripened bursting, fallen
every dinner floor cloth, table abuzz
engulfed in giggling aromas whispers
receding into serene nightly quietude

a darkened descent into an unseen dream

'in the beginning is the end' 


  1. "a lost slipper found under the bed
    forming the pair, comfortably walking away"

    This image sets the lonely tone, all spirals on while winding down, down . . . but maybe some reunions will rejuvenate after all while others are sweet cream into the sunset. What a lovely poem!

    1. Thank you Dr Susan, though I feel could have written better...reunions are short lived...leaving happy memories but more sorrow as well..I guess all moments have their special emotional treasures and places in are right..some reunions stay for long sweet years, and some...

  2. Love the beautiful images & some with a tinge of sadness. Lovely & deep. Nice to see you after a long time here @ PU :)
