Celebrate Poetry-4/27: LOSS

The theme for Day 26’s celebration of National Poetry Month is “LOSS.” Click HERE for details of this haiku celebration of throughout the month of April.

I’m on the road today, and attempted to post this blog from my iPad, so my apologies if it looks a little awkward. 🙂

I’ve often found that a garden is a good metaphor for so many things in life, including loss:

a lovely flower
died in my garden but
spring will come again

  1. Roses all a bloom
    Reds and yellows oh so sweet
    Faded all too soon.

  2. Jim Barton says:

    where is the old me
    the one who filled these fat-jeans–
    I am at a loss

  3. I hear you singing
    wind chimes calling out my name
    my heart so empty

  4. Azim Khan says:

    they scan the list –
    twenty of them
    more to be confirmed

  5. Azim Khan says:

    darkening sky —
    dressed in black
    faint sobs

  6. Matters not how long
    Sacred pet enriched your life
    Loss still felt sorely.

  7. Azim Khan says:

    widow raises her veil
    and places the wedding ring
    on gravestone
