So here's my latest published poem in Panorama 2016 entitled:
DEPARTUREGingerly he crossesthe uneven groundafraid of falling,holds firmly to his cane.Three months have passedsince she departed,leaving him behind, alone.Sixty years ago,they were so young, in love,pledged their vows solemnly.Oh, to return nowfor one day or just an hour,hold her in his arms,tenderly express his love,feel again her sweet touch.Time is too crueltaking her away so suddenly,his dear companion.He leaves a single daisy,her favorite…on the grave.
