The Turning *

It seemed

like

yesterday

~~~~

I was a

bud

in Spring’s nourishing womb

my first mother

then I opened

blossomed

in Summer’s warm touch

my second mother

now I have

withered

in Autumn’s cool embrace

my third mother

I await

suspended

in Winter’s final grip

my fourth mother

after which I will

be born again,

Life moves

with the

Seasons

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
