seamless in mourning—
the only child’s funeral
beginning at noon
~~ ~~ ~~
radical sendoff—
for his daughter’s funeral
a fireworks display
~~ ~~ ~~
pathetic mourners
after the child’s funeral
stumbling to their homes

More Three Word Wednesday: “Pathetic, Radical, Seamless”

  1. The conflicting images are very effective – i understand why people try and celebrate the life of a loved one..not the death..but the loss and pain is inescapable..particularly losing a child i imagine..

  2. Losing a child must be unfathomable; until it happens to you. These people don’t know what to say or do so they do nothing ( which doesn’t always help either) or they reach for fireworks to celebrate that life hoping to dull the pain for a moment . These are extremely sad images, hugs for you.

  3. Nothing is quite so bad as losing a child and no explanation is needed in the way parents show their grief. Even losing a foetus (fetus) is heartbreaking and you just think of the life that could have been and weep.

  4. The loss of a child must be the greatest test that anyone could face! Great use of the words!
