Echoes of Mourning

train whistles

a piercing tribute

to all the lonely

solo journeyers

en route between

hither and yon

transfixed, in transit

with impermanence

dove coos

a plaintive lament

calling out

in acknowledgement

futures lost

wounds proclaimed

singing the dirge

of yesterdays

there is comfort

in evocative elegies

they, like she

hum notes by heart

  1. Such a calming poem, lovely. I was doing the same earlier today, just listening to the birds and the breeze.. it’s a nice way to be in the moment (which is something I need to practice more often!) ❤
