A Death in the Family

as the news spreads
grief gathers to a surge
crashes like a wave
wrecks all in its wake
hurls us to disparate shores
stranded and alone
scratching signs for help

Peculiar Julia
Lit Up

Writer of poetry, prose, & the occasional rant. I feed the monsters under my bed story cake & poem pastries. What do you feed them?
