Dying Embers- Christine Ray, Nicole Bohnask & Gerry Hanna


A spontaneous riff off a six word story led three strangers from around the world to write this little piece.  I hope you enjoy meeting Nicole Bohnask & Gerry Hanna as much as I did


Our cold bed whispers your name

relentlessly reminding me of your absence

I turn to ice without you

the fire long since unwillingly extinguished

I mourn alone among dying embers

awaiting Death’s final welcome cold embrace

my arms still reaching for you.
