FOWC with Fandango — Tenuous

FOWC with Fandango — Natural

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #42: farewell

Along island’s natural coast, you bade

Farewells…though you were already gone

At rest, free, unfettered…leaving memories

For handful of intimates to hold, keepsakes…

The crowd of admirers, as always, shut out

From your life and death, ever restricted.

How tenuous this life, the frail egos of men

Most of whom grasp and cling, strive for

One more day, hour of reputation, legacy…

True, some beg for, seek early release, but

You were big name, penned in bold strokes

And you shamed critics, left wealth to charity.

I was nothing, no one…but I loved, will

Always love you fiercely.

    You did well in bringing those prompts together.
