Beginning


The hot Durango dust
has settled, on the place where she lay.
The sky is still blue,
And the earth is still brown,
Like her eyes, and her hair and her skin.

But she is gone.
And while we search for answers,
And mourn for this ending

She soars.
Leaving the thin, transparent earth
That we call real
And finding Reality and Peace

While we wait, in the dust,
And water the future with our tears
And misunderstandings.


In memory of Daisy M. The niece of my very dear friend, who died while visiting her grandparents in Mexico.

Very touching. And I love how it pities those left behind and celebrates her peace. Awesome perspective.
