Very well done, and so sad. you've created great imagery here. I love the line "A misty goodbye in the air - unspoken"
Great portrait of an unending moment.
A really haunting piece. I liked how you gave your character a name in the poem, it grounded it, gave it an anchor, making it somehow easier to relate to. Great magpie!
