Thanksgiving

One red candle of dying flame I pour one glass of Bordeaux, into yesterday A meal for one, as autumn leaves become undone A sad clown’s face Reflects back to me Thanksgiving is lonely When all your friends are dead

Oh, Arthur, all holidays are lonely when your loved ones are gone. Wish I could give you a hug. Hate to think of you so sad, but this is a beautiful, touching poem! Pouring "one glass of Bordeaux into yesterday" really got to me. I've spent holidays alone, so I know just how you feel. Love, carolyn

You have painted a stark portrait of loneliness. A beautiful still life done with words. This reminds me of a poem I wrote about a conversation with a lady I cared for in a nursing home, Ninety Something. I will post it.
