Season Woven In Grief

Persuaded by time,
and clothed in rust,  trees reveal
a changed homecoming...
The illusions of my youth
drift away with falling leaves

My eyes search for him,
although my heart knows better
Old fences need paint,
Scabs of white shed like feathers
from the dry and weathered rails

There, by the back door
his old plaid jacket is hanging,
waiting to be worn...
It holds scent of burning leaves...

A tear smolders on the sleeve

    Carrie, I think Susan will really like this tanka set. I love how you SHOWED grief and did not TELL it. that makes the poem so much more interesting. Thanks for sharing your story of the drive in fog. I have been in several such situations and always it is scary!!
