Yet, In Death

In life you sustained
softness
by attachment.
False freedom from
a fixed stem
left to
join the breeze
from your branch.

A whole life lived.

Yet, in death
you weave
within whisps of air
across a path
or pile.
Heaping adventures
as little bits
chip
to nothing.
Until a once fastened
stem remains,
your empty ghost.
Pieces remaining
are scattered
along the adventures of 
an afterlife.

Chalkabration: April 2017



Welcome to Chalkabration's new home! I hope you had a wonderful month of poetry throughout April. My students and I celebrated at the end of last week. I hope you will join me today with your own Chalkabration poem! Share your own or your classroom's celebration with a link to your blog post in the comments. Another way to share your chalk poem is to visit the I Think in Poems Facebook page and share your image in a post or Tweet your poem's image with #chalkabration.
