From Watch to Wake

I have held watch with Eileen as she moved through the last days of her father. Her unflinching poet's eye both gripped and awed me to silence. Her courageous vulnerability beyond inspiring. For her and her family I offer:

In Memoriam

Released
from pain
soaked boney flesh,

poet's
heartwings thrum
soul's journey song.

Serenity
births words,
heals wounds, returning

child
to father
charm's memory secure.
