Whispers In The Silence

Lawrence_original_3-1by Lawrence Estrey05 May 2020

you take a walk along a twisting path
flanked by hedges and trees and fields
the warmth of the sun guides you
as you continue alone in silence

whispers and echoes of a life that once was
grief overwhelms you, storming your chest
you reach the end of the trail and turn
to begin the lonely journey home
