Sunday Scribblings: goodbye

handful of kites
anchored into the sand
the colors of all my past loves
pick up each one in turn
watch it dance with the wind
love its colors again for a while
with an opening hand let it rise on its own
wave goodbye as it floats out of sight
feel the stillness sit down
by my side in the sand
feel the space of the wide open sky

This is beautiful Megan - I found myself reading it several times, savoring the images. This is a lovely, peaceful way to say goodbye :)

BTW, glad to hear you found some inspiration in the book Poemcrazy - I liked it too!

Those lines brought tears to my eyes.
Thanks for sharing.
