    1. Hi Benjamin, and thanks for reading and leaving a comment on this one. I’m pleased that you like it. As for this headache, I’ve had it a few days now, and I’m darned bored with it already.

  1. This is wonderfully atmospheric. I like how your poem goes full circle, begins and ends with black and carries the darkness throughout!

  2. Oh, this reminds me of two things. The first of Queen Elizabeth, who after her beloved passed, wore black for the rest of her life. And also of those European elders, whose husband departed first and they too wore black allowing no color to shade their emotions.

    We allow our imagination free reign with the wordles and so they go!
    Thanks for your visit.

  3. May I be brave enough to celebrate my man’s life in living color, should he pass before me. This is gorgeous, Misky, if not shrouded in sadness. Black, the outward expression of grief.

  4. Misky!! This is wonderful!! I just love how your topic keeps persisting with the dark, heavy feeling throughout and your ending is just stunning from “no charms…” on…I love your ending!!
