    The cold autumn winds cannot reunite leaves
    with trees-the robins rain enraptured eyes
    and wind waltzed wings tempt caged tears that grieve.
    A widow plants flowers-her old man lies
    ready to caress the contours of a rose,
    his fingers are phantoms too frail to grip
    a swaying rose as the cemetery gates close
    and with newly found notes the robin slips
    into a rhapsody. Fingers rove across
    thorns, a flower soothed into stillness
    a wifes haunted heart made still by the loss
    of harking for the music of madness.
    Under red winter skies a robin bathes
    snow falls from thorns below ice captured graves.

    Hi Moondance
    I really enjoyed this poem. Although short it sparked a lot of thoughts within me. Its very delicate and kind of haunting, but very beautiful.

    this is righteous ! and I fall short of words to praise the Beauty you have captured in this little piece. Im a cemetery person and not in morbid way but the stillness and the quite of humanity inside its premises is fascinating .. its almost as if humanity loses its importance here and nature takes over, the birds the flowers the winds the trees and the soft bed of leaves underfoot, it demystifies death and makes it a welcome conclusion to the chaos of life. I feel inspired.

    I enjoyed this sonnet as well! It's so perfectly editorial to me, these abstract concepts:
    1. Wind-waltzed wings tempting caged tears
    2. Fingers as frail phantoms
    3. The robin slipping into song
    Yeah - These abstract concepts are giving me life.
    Nicely done moondance! Nicely done!
