It’s been more than a fews weeks since I’ve posted anything. The holidays were rough but I made it through.
My sister Teri passed away last year and this year noticing how impermanent life is. Not anything new, I know, but the gravity of it pulls at my heart strings.
This poem is written for my Aunt Lillian, who has been in my life since I was an infant. She was like a mother to me, and a friend. She has metastatic lung and liver cancer and has a few short months to live. Her loving soul will be missed.
I pray that everyone reaches out to their loved ones and that we honor each other every moment of every day. Because as long as life seems to be, it is, in the end fleeting.
Every soul a shining star
Spirit’s breath from afar
a dance in time
a soul’s unique rhyme
tear drops descend
heart candy mends
a dark waning moon
a soul’s cast of blossoms boom
here for now in an exquisite pose
gone tomorrow like a fragile rose
