Something Like Happiness, Sometimes

WELCOME.  I’m Rose Auslander.  After years in Brooklyn, my husband Rick and I moved up to Cape Cod in the summer of 2015.  Hoping to share a little sea air . . .



Ghazel of Shards

Dear ones, might a sign appear, if only a shard?
Even if sheered from nothing, a shard.

50 days slipped safely past
you who have disappeared—bequeath a shard.

Wherever you flew, wherever you fell
Dear lost ones, just a shard.

Your spectral lines, your memories, even your
fear clinging somewhere. However sharp, a shard.

Do you remember us?
We wait here. Even for a shard.
