mist of memory
creeps in
the wintry land
for the lost soul
hidden beneath
the silent earth,
digging until
the knuckles bleed
and the crystals of
grief suspended in
the halting

This is written in remembrance of a missing woman in our community.  Her children and many friends loved her.  She was a respected businesswoman also.  It’s been over a year since her disappearance.  The winter weather has hampered the search effort.  Spring is here.  Wish them the best for their search effort.

  1. Your powerful poetry evokes tragedy of suspended ‘crystals of grief’–beautiful and haunting.

    I pray for this woman’s family, friends and your community. May you experience closure and slow healing soon.
