Spring Send Off – A One Word Photo Challenge Sonnet

Spring Send Off

Everywhere he looked spring had sprung green, gold
and clear running streams no longer ice-choked.
Nights still froze his balls off, but leave the wold
he would to see Shayari ‘fore he croaked.
Nothing tied him here now that his wife had gone.
His children grown no longer wanted him
around, an inconvenience he’d become.
He set off that morn adjusting his brim,
to hide the tear tracing his grizzled cheek.
He put his home of five decades behind
and headed for the last time to that creek
which marked the end of home, no time to whine
about loss, giving that his back, he turned
and in his breast, curiosity burned.

The protagonist for this sonnet is a fellow I am playing around with for a short story coming your way soon.

I whipped  this for the One Word Photo Challenge – Spring
