Greater The Loss

Is it the longing for the majestic sunset
for the man that can no longer see?
Or is it the ignorance of the colors
for the woman who has never seen?
Is it the ache for the one now left
with only recollection of years
of mother's embrace?
Or is it the emptiness for the orphan
who cannot recall her face?
Is it the loss of the mighty tree
burning as it falls?
Or is it the lack of the tree
that never stood at all?

  3. Hi Carrie glad to see that your comments now work (or was it me!)
    This is a really reflective piece, almost sad
    I think that the last two lines for me encapsulate the feeling and spirit of the piece

    "Or is it the lack of the tree
    that never stood at all"

    Mournful but not hopeless, reflective almost sad.
