Half of Love

The prompts were to write about half of something, or stuck in the middle or something half open or something about being half in love.

What we ended up with is a triolet about missing your better half.

At the Cemetery

The aspen’s yellow leaves quiver.
Stark against holly and pine.
Beside them I weep and shiver.
The aspen’s yellow leaves quiver.
We wait for the men to deliver
your box, occupied, to enshrine.
The aspen’s yellow leaves quiver.
Stark against holly and pine.

  1. Thank goodness I am not reading this a month from now. I’d be brought to my knees. Still brought tears to my eyes as it is. Thank you so much. Beautiful emotion.
