Lost Chord

 

When life deals us another cruel blow…

Dedicated to a soul sister in South Africa with love

And

 also on being denied access to my grandchildren.

Birds still sing,
somewhere;
But just for now
their sounds are muted,
dead.

There are reasons
for our seasons…
And just because
those things are hidden
does not mean
they do not exist.

All that ever happens
is still winging its way
into the stars;
And,
if overtaken,
they can yet be experienced
and understood
by those
who go beyond.

Somewhere over the rainbow?’

Yes, there
they sing.

Simple words but beautifully expressed sentiment. Can certainly relate.
Lovely Alison.

Alison: “Somewhere over the rainbow.” a good set-up, but perhaps a last line that doesn’t wonder i.e.”it must”, but affirms, “Yes./It is there.” anyway, something to consider for the end of a well-paced poem. Swep

Alison: i think that improves your poem but would suggest if other endings have occurred to you that you try them, one by one, and select the best. you are, and need to be, the ultimate arbiter. Swep

This is very pure. Perhaps it is the rainbow that sings the colours that fill us with joy. For its destiny is to be here when everything else has gone.
