That vase

Home is so sad. It stays as it was left,
Shaped to the comfort of the last to go
As if to win them back. Instead, bereft

…Long fallen wide. You can see how it was:
Look at the pictures and the cutlery.
The music in the piano stool. That vase.

Phoartry for Phillip Larkin’s ~ Home is so sad …more

Note: after completing this in photoshop I visualised it as Pandora’s box with all the worlds woes released alongside the figurative Hope but then from Larkin’s poem, I see the spilled vase in which are kept childhood memories of the home we all must leave behind. That is the beauty of abstraction – it permits rather than dictates!
