Unexpected Blue

By Dianna D. Directo


I was only one

It was a rainy day,

The messenger came

It made my mom so blue.


Early morning she flew.

Came back, carrying father sleeping inside the box.

Mom don’t know what to do


The smell of loneliness

Flows through the air

The touch of sympathy

Bonds us together


Cry like a river

Scream like thunder

Shine like the sun

Tomorrow you’ll be stronger
