Honorable Mention in the 4th Annual October Project Contest: “Reunion” by Julia Fulton

She’s beside me

Her fingers splayed 

From arthritis

Unsure of the keys 

On that old piano 

We’re laughing

Notes flutter 

Like sparrows 

Echo in the air 

Happiness tangible 

On waking 

Palpable grief at the

Emptiness of the room

She’s gone of course

Wherever she goes at


Back to heaven’s gate

A strong sea wind

My only consolation

If the best part of life

Is the company

How strange to be left


Out of the loop

As the departed gather 

In numbers now

Hoping as night falls

To find them all

Holding hands 

In the dark.
