Joy Streaked Sorrow

Gone for so long
I reach out once more.
I’m afraid to move on,
But I know the future is more.
 
This time not forgotten,
I will carry it always.
Within my heart.

I’ve seen many things end and begin in my life, even if they are not things that are on a stage like Trifectra. They have been something to me and though I have mourned their ending, knowing that each ending can be another’s beginning has given me joy within that sorrow.

Thank you, Trifectra editors, your challenges helped me learn that you can say a lot with only a little.

An Experience

She closed her eyes and turned away, a faint smile on her face, a tear drifting down her cheek. The note lay in her hand:

Anna, it’s been an amazing experience knowing you.

It looks like the Trifectra editors are closing the weekly prompts and though I will miss the weekly stretch (I’m usually too wordy when I write) I am all the more grateful to have been a part of this competition.

It has been an honor Trifectra!

Not Wanted

The funeral had been hard to sit through. Her sons were angry and sad and didn’t know just how much he was missed.

Mary sighed as her eldest slammed the door behind him.

This isn’t what I meant.
