Fibonacci Poems x 2

Writers groups are wonderful places to meet talented people. I am lucky enough to belong to such a group in Katikati.

One of the ladies recently read out the following two Fibonacci poems she wrote regarding loss.

With her kind permission I would like to share them with you.

LOSS

Initially

acutely felt

deprivation and panic

are gradually replaced by desolation.

The loud and all encompassing silence insults resolution.

Routines, habits, customs suffer disruption

as the struggle

to comprehend

stagnates.

—————————————–

LOSS (2)

Fill

the glass,

raise the draught,

turn to the usual chair.

No one there! Whisper “cheers” to crowded memories.

Savour the drop and reminiscences.

Decide on changes

to life

unlived.
