Sun Kissed #atozchallenge #poetry #photography


old, weathered sun has kissed my face

 youthful  color there is no trace

wind scorched have I been left to dry

you never stopped to say “goodbye”


the life we shared was fair and good

the test of time is where we stood

what came between love you and I?

you never stopped to say “goodbye”


some things do come and others go

life springs forth death’s a solemn blow

things fade away, I don’t know why

you never stopped to say “goodbye”


the hinges barely hold me now

I soon shall take my final bow

I say these things with fateful sigh

you never stopped to say “goodbye”




 Kyrielle:  a french form poem is structured so that all lines have eight syllables and each stanza of four lines ends in a refrain. The Kyrielle takes on a rhythmical form much like a rhyming couplet.

The structure of the Kyrielle is made of of a minimum of three  lined stanzas





(the capital line denotes the refrain that runs through the poem.) Thanks to Young Writers for the information


“People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross (Brainy Quotes)

  1. I love it! It made me think of dogs abandoned by their families (of course it would, me being who I am)–and it made me tear up 🙂 Thanks for the lesson on Kyrielles–had never heard of them, but I’ve seen a few. Now I know what they are.

    Thanks also for the visit at Quiet Laughter and for sharing your bit on first kisses. Loved that you joined the conversation.


  2. def a heaviness…the not getting to say goodbye makes it hard on the grieving process that comes even in parting…..nice form moon…

    so you have me intrigued for tomorrow…will see you then…
