Angels In Disguise


“Be not


to strangers,

lest they be

angels in disguise.”


~ W B Yeats


Elfje:            (Cinquain)          classic: each word only one syllable



last breath

to the end

those left to grieve



Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

he loved her so much
spirits entwined to the end
he was left to grieve

a generation now gone
time does not wait for a soul




Death, the poets greatest fear
the thought of losing someone so dear
always searching for the meaning of life
the heart wounded by an emotional knife

why that person, why not me
the only human with whom I could agree
their unwavering love knew no limits
souls that were touched by holy spirits

never alone, their echoes live in our hearts
lonely because the laughter never starts
unknown triggers renew the grief
inner turmoil caused by an emotional thief

let the tears flow, they cleanse the soul
because we know for whom the bells toll


ME and my dearest Boss
