Today’s prompt was to write an elegy poem. Staying true to Delaina J. Miller fashion I wrote an elegy for something I wish did not exist or at the very least, did not rule our lives no matter how well intentioned. 🙂



What will we do
without you?
How can we face the sun
when all we know of it
is shadows?
Protected we were
in your fog asylum.
Your presence
no longer present,
our bleached and smooth minds
pull the shawl of courage
tight to our shoulders
fling the door wide
and greet the dawn.
