Nowhere To Go

Nowhere To Go.  ©Louise Gallagher.
We danced at the edge
leaning into the horizon
where the sky bled blue
in the limitless
possibility of life
spent dreaming
of our tomorrows
forever after.


Day turned
night fell
dawn rose
in the light
growing dimmer
grey on grey
but this place
where you are gone
and I am here,
with nowhere to go
but into the long view
of my tomorrows,
without you.

    1. The feeling of loss is heart-wrenching and I think Louise has really plumbed the depths of that feeling in her poem (and as you’ve said, the image is very beautiful). Great choice of photo..the empty seat says it all really! Thanks Ann.

    1. My pleasure and privilege Louise. The poem and photo together are very touching. (And because it’s winter here in New Zealand it touched my heart even more). Thank you!
