After It Is Over (Blogophilia 48.6)

The words said
Crowd disbands
To their cars.

Sun breaking
Through the tears
Warming hearts

Battle long
Relief short
Everyone leaves

Empty house
Time on her
Hands, standing

Rosemary thyme
Potato
dish on shelf.

Memories
In quiet
Desperation

Who will stop
The rain, she
Cries out loud

Sitting in
His large chair
Life leaves her..
