Weeping - IT

I have been on a break from life too long, now, I am free to go outside, where the eerie boardwalk creaks near the white sand beach; that is void of people as I gulp air. I lay on the sand under blazing sun, happy to have survived the pandemic; and drift off to a restless, dark sleep, of sabbatical dreams after quarantine. I leave the crashing, roaring waves and beach, and stop at the corner store for cheap wine; at my building some people are standing, the label I hide on the wine bottle. We chat easily talking of gossip, I say bye and go to my apartment; they told me of the psycho cat's demise, the stray that I was feeding for a year, and I fall on my bed weeping for her . . . _____________________________ September 23, 2020 Poetry/Verse/Weeping - IT Copyright Protected, ID 09-1288-956-23 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Collaboration with Kim Rodrigues Written for the contest, Collaborate With Me sponsor, Kim Rodrigues, Judged 11/8/20 First Place

Constance, you are magician taking these completely unrelated lines and weaving them into a story of the joy, finally being free, and the grief of losing a little friend. Well done dear friend! Heartfelt and heartrending. Sending you best wishes for the contest!
