(Delta Theta 1961 by Morris Louis, 1912-1962, American
Abstract Expressionist painter)
A simple metaphor is often sufficient to express profound grief.
Your absence has gone through me
Like a thread through a needle.
Everything I do is stitched with its color.
~ W. S. Merwin, born in 1927, American poet, essayist, and translator
