(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

Interesting how he reveals loss or grief not as a negative, as of the empty place, but as a real and powerful presence.
