REMEMBERING THEM IS DEEP SORROW

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

Anastasia

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

A-NOT-SO-JOLLY CHRISTMAS

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
