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: Dedicated to anyone who has been fighting or struggling for whatever reason. Know you are not alone. My song choice is Thinking ‘Bout You by Cat Stevens/Yusuf

Cat Stevens is a favorite of mine, his lyrics are beautiful and written from the heart. Yusuf Islam (born Steven Demetre Georgiou; 21 July 1948), commonly known by his stage name Cat Stevens, and later Yusuf, is a British singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.[1] His musical style consists of folk, pop, rock, and, in his later career, Islamic music.[2][3][4] He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.[5] He has also won a number of humanitarian awards.
