Counting Crows and November Snows

Counting Crows and November Snows

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers

Counting Crows and November Snows

 

 

There is a void

that punctuates my tears

 

A parade of years

are all that is left me,

 

to counting crows

and November snows.

This made me think of a couple that had spent so many years together and have it abruptly ended. It reminded me of my grandfather after my grandmother passed. He lived on for a several years, but was never the same. This is well use of a small amount of words. Nice job.

A reflective write I felt, on where all the years passed in a parade have gone so quickly leaving one alone to ponder on what was and what is left, maybe in a void of a love lost. A simply beautiful write Kelly.

I can see the seasons speak to many of us for many a reason. Thank you, Andrew!
Wow! Amazing verse. Says so much about the sights and sounds of loneliness and losing someone very special to your heart and how life is so empty without them...The title is great; unforgettable. A pleasure to read your work.

Thank you for making my day, LaShaye. I was hoping the brevity of my words would speak volumes.

With aging. Seasons become more important. We are left to looking at life with experience eyes. Thank you Kelly for sharing the outstanding poetry.

Old age. More crows to count and you are welcome Kelly.
I've known the depth and dark and hopelessness of a void, more than one has drawn me in, but i've crawled out, and found wonderful friends, and new things to discover, but You know this, being one of them,, well written, as always my dear..
