Every Feather Falling

“In sorrow we must go, but not in despair. Behold! we are not bound for ever to the circles of the world, and beyond them is more than memory.” 

― J.R.R. Tolkien

Every feather falling 
from a stormy sky
another soul transforms
into a different life

No longer are they calling
Sweet hellos and long good-byes
But caught in their own firestorms
Reliving their deeds with strife

Their voices now are whispering
In lonesome sorrowful sighs
Amidst booming thunderstorms
Floating into an afterlife

But soon quiet comes after howling storms
when they evolve into magnificent light

  1. This is incredibly deep and poignant, Linda! I especially resonate with; “Sweet hellos and long good-byes/But caught in their own firestorms.” Thank you so much for adding your voice to the prompt, mon amour 💝💝
