#471. salaam (for andrea

May 11, 2011

tender pallbearers
not quite in step 
with all hands trembling 
open 

to forget no light
nor the dark shining
eyes wells sharp tears
open

flowers and earth
molecules in the spring 
time to harvest 
open

a gift from your heart
more than smoke
in the wind to us left here
open

    Such a sad tone to the poem.

    very sad…
    “tender pallbearers
    not quite in step
    with all hands trembling”
