“Into the West” – Nichols, 21 April 2016

homeward
as the
sun sets
and my
weariness
takes over;
staring out
the bus
window,
all but
oblivious
to the
beauty
to the
rose
and gold
before my
eyes.

still lost
still shocked
still reeling
from the
loss:
dear friends,
innocent lives
perishing
in flames;
angry words
traded,
hearts emptied
broken,
betrayal and
denial
wounding and
maiming
rending what
little left
apart.

and the
sun
sets on
one more
day;
and i
weep
as i
trudge home,
perhaps
another time
another day.
