sleepy boy


it's been so long.
too long to say.
so i won't try
to fit it into 
this space.

the birds came
home today
crying again
and they
sang like
aspen leaves
and like
old friends.


it's been so long
too long to say.
but you are never coming back.
though you went away.

  4. I love the mystery to your writing....it has me imagining the full story, what inspired the poem. The middle stanza is my favorite! The birds crying is such a powerful image and sound!
