That's shocking. You told a full story here with the descriptions of the very normal things in life, the coffee cup on table, the pulled back chair, and then the bad news that he would not be back changes everything. Great job with your shadorma poem!

    Thank you very much, Helen. Yes, bad news changes everything. I remember the way I felt after my mother died, it was like my whole life changed in a moment.

    And you were so very young! That was so devastating for you. I remember you said, you slept for days.

You did a great job with this ekphrastic piece, Gypsy. Your well chosen words pair perfectly with the great picture. Your color scheme is appropriate and the message is clear. I like that you leave readers wondering what the bad news was that he would hear. Your poem reads smoothly with great imagery.
Thanks for sharing.
Respectfully, Jan

Another fine poem, Gypsy--there's something forlorn and sad about a picture of an old empty coffee cup; like a forgotten sentinel guarding the entrance to Valhalla--all just shut up now, I have NO idea what that even means of where I was going with this goiter!

It's like a writer should be, imagery is all about what one sees, not necessarily with the naked eye, but with that inner eye, reading between the lines, beautifully written Gypsy, as usual, blessings Roy
