Day of the Dead (tankas)*

clear circular sphere

fore tells a full moon rising

all hollows eve nears

living await Los Muertos

family gone brought to life

~

candles burning bright

photos ‘n items cherished

placed upon their graves

nights joy where death has no role

Celebrating memories

  1. I was able to walk in All Soul’s Parade last year for a dear departed friend. Holding onto his memories made the altars and stories set up around the city of Tucson, Arizona for people others had lost made the experience so much more special.
    Thank you for sharing this!
