After the loss

I wrote this poem for day 3 (one-word prompt) of WP’s Finding Everyday Inspiration independent workshop, this week, which I’m going through in tandem (pretty much) with Mara Eastern, whom I met through Poetry 101 Rehab activities, which she hosted for quite a while.

“children, after
loss of parents”

home is no more
with grief
comes an abundance
of regret

in secret, our hope
each makes the choice
to outrun death
and mourn alone
