These winter days
their darkness bring
Pale of thought
No hope to spring

You’re back, Marcus! I enjoyed the poem, bleak thoughts though it expresses…
I’ve had a lot of death around me this year, starting with the gut wrenching passing of my beloved dad in Ireland in January, with a number of others I’ve known for decades also dying during the year. It culminated less than two weeks ago with the passing of a treasured friend at only 68, taken way too soon. Reading your poem this morning has released a lot of emotion in me. Thank you.
I’m sorry to hear about your Dad and your friend, among others, passing away. I’ve always thought that to lose those close to us means losing part of ourselves also, making grief that more difficult to bear. Be good to yourself.
