Honeymoon of Mourning

When the husk of the walnut
dries from green to tough
those precious moments
will become harder to crack

In poems I swathe you
weaving words to cocoon
where you may linger
and unfold your wings
when you wish to appear to me

Thus I want to prevent
that my thoughts of you
turn into furniture
covered in shrouds

Words between worlds
I wish to write for you

But what if my pen runs dry
will I lose you a second time then?

These poems are for those who have experienced the death of a dear companion and wish to continue that relationship through inner dialog.
