cemetry stroll:
even the squirrels
have each other

taken too soon
God's timing— certainly
not my own

last casualty:
the smell of your hair
forgotten

Kevin,

Thanks for sharing your sadness with your readers. My condolences for your loss. Your "last casualty" is haunting and beautiful.

thanks for your kindness Kami. the loss i write of here occured nearly fourteen years ago, when still in high school. i haven't given it 'voice' until just now.

I bury my face

bigshoulders,

I came here intending to just thank you for visiting my site and commenting on a story of mine. Little did I know that I would enjoy it as much as I did. You have a lot of sides and angles to you, which I admire. This was brilliant I thought:

last casualty:
the smell of your hair
forgotten

If there is a more beautiful smell in the world I want to know what it is...Please stop back by again sometime and read a story or two. I know I'll be back here. Again, you've done a great job her. - Skee
