Quiet Season

Quiet Season

The air is crisp in the quiet season,

Frowns sitting like maps on pale foreheads,

Withering flowers. Limp on cold stone,

Maybe marble-grey or black.


Quite souls ponder silent hearts,

A gathering.

Snowflakes knit a blanket of healing

Upon the bed of those who are silent,

A reminder of soft memories.


Snowdrops- soon to wilt with the melting season.

Marking a passing,

To remember.

Marking the end of the Quiet season.



-Emma Cunningham

In memory of Grandad Ken.
