I Tried

After times of sorrow 

Hope lives on,

in tomorrow 

So sings,

my little sparrow

All my mountains

have been climbed 

All my climbs

had their falls and failures 

Then ultimately

I tried to reach my goal

“Except that the goal

Falls short of the reach” … Leonard Cohen, from his song ‘The Goal’

Icy. (a Haiku)

A decade has gone
Since that icy day in May
Loneliness is cold
