"Carpe diem."


Light shines
Dimly
Through the window;
The first signs
Of sunrise
Through the clouds

No bird sing,
But they are there –
Puffed up against
The residual cold
Of night
And winter…
And death

I watch
The oranges and pinks and blues
Of distant dawn
Paint the clouds

And I think of you

My great grandmother died recently, and it seems like every little thing reminds me of her.

This is amazing, cavyheart. Even better than your other poems. Great descriptions, but not too much. It's really good.
