False Hope

A gravestone.
It says Sheila Ryan, died aged 59
A devoted mother

Here clinging to the hillside
Striving, for the solemn white cross at the top


As soil creep carries the believer down the hill.

    I agree with Ruben about the 4 word stanza being powerful. I also like the interesting perspective in the last line. Definitely gets the reader thinking. Thank you for your kind words on my poem. Have a nice day. Karen

    I love this 4-words-stanza: "Standing/ quiet, /unmoving,/ unsympathetic."....powerful and thought-provoking words. But I'm a litle lost with the persona, its presence is quite abstract. Ruben.
