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


*Note: The Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere. Always for your listening pleasure a song for The Day of the Dead. 🌎✌🏻💙

Take care, be safe.

  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!
