Solitude (Kodoku)

Carpe Diem #622 Solitude (Kodoku)


I miss you most
midday when no laughter rings
throughout the house


~

wind lashes my ears
bleak walk home 
no one to greet me



~

cold cup of coffee
stale toast on the table
signs of our parting

  1. What can I say, Dolores -- you've captured solitude -- a lonely solitude -- so well.

    1. Thanks, I'm just glad it's not mine. The lonely solitude, that is.

  2. The toast and cold coffee can go to the compost heap?
