Raven's Flight

She walks silently through the mist.
The headstones reach out to grab her.
She searches for her grave.
No, it doesn't say Raven, not yet anyway, 
But it does hold her heart and her soul.
Her child, small and helpless without a mother.
Her husband, alone, unable to be comforted in her arms.
She runs now, afraid she will never find it.
Finally she sees the marble monument,
She sits down on the grave.
Her fingers tracing the words,
Names etched in the hard stone for all eternity.
She struggles again with her decision.
Will others think her a coward or a hero?
Does it matter at all what they think?
At last, she makes her decision, 
Tears stream down her face as she raises the pistol,
And sends it flying into the mist.

    I had only read a couple of the poems and wanted so badly to enter but...too many things were going on and didn't get to. I knew Constance would have a time selecting her winners. There is a long list of winners here. You should be so proud of your winning poem congratulations Christi. Love, Carol

    Christi, I'm so glad she tossed away the pistol. So many of the entries have very dark endings. This one goes to my faves. You really brought this woman's emotions to life. Congratulations on your big win! Love, Carolyn
