Original Poetry by DS Coremans
Golden Shovel – To the Moon
Do not cry my love, I miss you too, you know that I
have never once doubted that I will see you love
another as much as your have them, for me. You
are my pride, he remains my joy and my hope to
find you when it is time will never dwindle on the
path towards a future which is hidden from the moon.
My love is weary, but I know that he tries for you and
my patience will continue to test and hold back
the tears I save for when I see you all again.
Until then my love, I love you the moon and back again.
Cinquain – Loss
share your sorrow;
give yourself time to grieve
then hold them deeply within your heart
Senryu – Growth
Bodies turned to ash
have let their spirit move on
so that they can grow.
Triolet – Nothing to Say
I didn’t have the heart to say goodbye
because I knew you would never leave me.
You were always there to keep our eyes dry
and I didn’t have the heart to say goodbye.
To think of you as gone still feels like a lie,
which offers none of us any real reprieve.
So, I didn’t have the heart to say goodbye
because I knew that you would never leave.
Haiku – Fire
Fire doesn’t burn
to destroy but to provide
heat and energy.
