Remembering them   
is deep sorrow piercing the  
heart that must weep to release 
what the flesh can't overcome.

She leans whispering,

whilst black deadened eyes stare back ~~

Amidst translucent

reflection, she now reflects ~~~*

In compassionate sorrow.

Her sibling taken

having disappeared years back ~~

Background beauty blooms

in ignorance of her loss ~~~*

If only they knew the truth.

*This is James Fraser's entry into Constance's 'Reflection' contest

Doesn't Christmastime mean
presents, carols and cheers?
But for one it won't
be a jolly Holiday
diagnosed with breast cancer.

High School

High School, what a drag
My best friend has class today?
Why did she start now?
School for her starts tomorrow
I wish I could have done more
