Beautiful Goodbye--By Sandra Stefanowich--Canada

Beautiful Goodbye

One lasting look
into the fire of the setting sun
floating adrift on a placid lake of blue.
Words weaved on a warm breeze
a single rose drops to the ground,
invisible footsteps lead away
from a beautiful goodbye.

Sandra Stefanowich is from Ontario.


  1. I feel like I am reading between the lines. Always wishing you well Sandra - Blessings to you...

  2. With such a beautiful goodbye we must assume that a wonderful return is anticipated. However, it could be interpreted other ways. A well written poem designed to keep the reader's interest from the first line to the last. Robert

  3. Dear Sandra,

    I often feel as though I am "floating adrift on a sea of placid blue." Ironically, you know I simply can't sink in the water. This is a very moving poem and I was especially impressed with the imagery. (We seem to be writing in sync once again-LOL) Love,

  4. Hello, Sandra, your poem emits a kind of echo, as if perhaps reflective of reminiscing or missing someone or losing someone............ All of these embrace a certain sentimentality and an air of sadness, perhaps, but indeed stirred and inspired by one moment in a beautiful view and setting. Your poem is lovely. Sheri

  5. Love it, Sandra. Very nice description. I love the imagery of the sun setting over the lake. Sometimes it's hard to turn away from. Thanks for sharing. Continued blessings!
