Empty Nest

We’re ‘Soul Gazing’ with Paul over at d’Verse Poets Pub

Empty Nest

This empty room
has no soul
It is a cavern
Lacking life
No music blaring , no laughter
Not the oasis of calm
I had imagined
No dirty socks or
Candy bar wrappers
Hiding under the unmade bed
No posters and tape
Marks adorning the walls
Instead a Monet has found
Its way onto the freshly
Painted surface
The smell of you has
Been replaced by lavender
And lemon grass
Sunlight streams in through
Clean windows like a picture
In some home improvement
Magazine, organized, coordinated
But without a soul

  1. Lots of feeling there. The quietness is palpable in your description, “Not the oasis of calm
    I had imagined No dirty socks or Candy bar wrappers Hiding under the unmade bed
    No posters and tape Marks adorning the walls”. Very profound silence

  2. I love the lines about lavender and lemongrass and sunlight straming through…….but one feels the remembering of the one who has gone……and left a certain emptiness behind.
