For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 28 April 2017

i met you on st. patrick’s day
just when spring was beckoning
and death took you one autumn
when leaves started falling

then autumn became winter
and winter turned to spring again
and spring became summer
but without you it wasn’t the same

many seasons have passed since then
i can count with my fingers
all’s left is your memory
and love, it lingers, it lingers

    Well written. Reminds me of Emily Dickinson. A beauty in the stillness, a peace in the quiet, such as what lingers on in the soul after life has ended.

      thank you. i love emily dickinson. i don’t mind rereading her poems all the time. it always makes me discover something that i’ve missed before.

        Agreed. I used to have a very very worn and dog-eared copy that I carried in the car to read while waiting for Hubby.
