LOL! Brilliant! You took about the same turn I did!! :) Great writing, and a wonderful read. Very flowing.


I really enjoyed this. I like the way you cultivate the insistence of the initial questions.


I enjoyed this very much, particularly the second stanza. A simple longing.

I like the longing here..


don't forget to get my cigars


Touching and moving and something I can identify with.


Waiting and questioning. I love the notion of the speaker coming at midnight to rebuild the deceased from his ashes. There's a desperation in grief that you describe well with that line.

are not. And wait."

Great closing lines!


Ah, if only we had the answers. Grief takes a long time to turn to ash. Wonderful piece!


This is perfection, Sharon. Love the way it flows and, for me, speaks to the yearning of some sign from the departed love one.


Well. This one seems to work. The photo did pull a bit.


It's a long wait and the questions never go away.


True, that.


Enjoyable read.


I love the image of pulling together the ashes into a semblance of the "you". Gorgeous work!
