Missing 15

henry-1s

Henry

Five foot two, eyes of
brown, last seen wearing dark green.
Black hat, also gone.

Falling farther off
course, a bottomless journey
that threatens to stay.

Questions posed as clues.
Perhaps a tender heart worn
yearning at the edge.

It’s been almost a year since I’ve done one of these portraits.  I’m still getting Silver Alerts in my inbox on a regular basis though.

The poem uses words from the Alert for Henry, as well as the Secret Keeper’s words this week
CLUE – COURSE – TENDER – THREAT – POSE

    Oh my–tugs at the heartstrings for sure.
    He resembles a very dear friend’s father (who died this past year)–so extra tugs.

    Great that you’re celebrating these older people in such a meaningful way. I heard a piece on the radio this morning about a new ballet/theatre piece celebrating the over 60s: ‘I’m not over the hill, I’m on top of it looking back over all that I’ve learned and forward to the future’ said one of the speakers in the ballet.
