Poem Details | by Heather Ober |
Categories: farewell, grief,


The years have stolen details from my mind.
Your face, once clear, has faded like a print
Within an album ready to unbind
And plunder from this sadness any hint

Of thinning strands and laughing lines around
The sweetest smile and brightest silver eyes.
I walk across the white, half-frozen ground.
As morning wanes, the wind begins to rise. 

The breeze relieves my sorrow like a sigh,
And, suddenly, as if by sacred cue -
A flash of red against the cobalt sky.
A cardinal of brilliant crimson hue!

And as the pangs of grief and joy collide,
I feel your spirit walking by my side.

The Red Cardinal

The Red Cardinal 
David Walker

His voice was sure and clear
“It was my mother”
He said, casually 
As if he had forgotten to
Mention her arrival

The red cardinal was 
staying near where
she could keep an eye on
Her son

Soon to follow her home

Had we known should we 
Have opened the door and
Invite her in  or

Was that for him to do alone
When he hears her voice singing
Calling him home

When the Cardinal Sings

When the Cardinal Sings
David J Walker 

The first alert of the
Coming dawn 
Drawn in silhouette
Across the azure horizon 

The Cardinals song 
Sung in imbricate solos 

Whose name does she 
Whose spirit is carried
Across the morning sky
On her wing

I read the morning paper
To see if it is me
