The last thing

6feb2013 047

Once
the sea was full with dying men
drowning in storms
never washed ashore
and the last thing they saw
was a woman combing her hair.
It was sea weed,
but men
are like that.

  1. Imaginative men! ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t be bad. Love this, Ina. It has a mythical sense to it. XO

    • Hi Diane, thank you very much. I somehow can’t imagine that in the midst of a blizzard you read my stuff! XXX ๐Ÿ™‚ And good luck!

  2. A good batch of poems today, Ina.

  3. I love the visuals of this post Ina. Both the image and poem convey the emptiness, yet beauty of loss. Nice work.
