One Single Impression: Love

Love

The widowed goose
Glides through air
That last summer
Carried his mournful cries

To swim where he once swam
As one of many

And landed always with his partner.

Faithful,
He glides through the pond
Day and night

Searching,
I think.

  17. Sandy, I believe your poet.
    I truly believe that death of a partner hits the male harder than when the roles are reversed.

    Dad was a widower for nine years. His burning question was why am I still here.
