Five Minute Friday: Vivid

The alarm clock peals
and I’m startled
to find myself in the dark.
The white table,
the warm tea,
my father –
just in front of me,
now gone.
Our conversation as real as my tears.

ah, yes. i dream in vividness, too, and sometimes it is harder on the heart than the real day!
simply, but beautifully told.

I love this post. So few words, yet I can feel your heart-ache. Your last line is so powerful too.

Beautiful, so real, so true. You painted it with simple words but the image is there and memories come back in a flash.
Thanks Lettie and have a great day.

As always, Lettie, you say so much in such few words. Strikingly, hauntingly beautiful words. Thank you.
