Drift of Grief by Michael Keshigian

Her tears fell softly,
rose petals
floating aimlessly
in a granite garden,
sorrow that searches
for relief.
Her breath releases
unsustainable lament,
a vapor cloud
in the field of stones,
kindling fond remembrances 
of frolic in rainstorms
and snowmen born
from flakes
that streamed from the skies.
She will not touch the box
nor place a flower
upon its crown,
afraid it might crumble,
afraid she might see him
handsome yet sad,
like the dream they had.

Michael Keshigian from New Hampshire, had his twelfth poetry collection, Into The Light, released in April, 2017 by Flutter Press. He has been published in numerous national and international journals recently including The California Quarterly, Red River Review, Tipton Poetry Journal, Aji Magazine and has appeared as feature writer in over a twenty publications with 6 Pushcart Prize and 2 Best Of The Net nominations.
