We grieve, we mourn
But life still goes on
Yesterday, in the parking lot I saw my shadow and I was amused at how much taller than me it was. This inspired me to write this poem. I restricted each line to seven syllables, much like the Japanese tanka. I am hoping it is readable.
The theme of the poem is sadness. I am getting on in years and I have lost many friends. I grieve for each of them. But I always opt to live fully the rest of my life.
