Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Locked


Inside looking out
Many phases of the moon
Her last loving hug

Locked in with her memories
Grandma sheds a single tear

Time is most priceless possession to the elderly. So to treat them as if their time is “less than” or to prolong taking precious time away from loved ones is intolerably cruel. Instead of the elderly”taking one for the team” let’s work together so that families can reunite and be whole again. 

Wear a mask, socially distance, wash your hands. Let’s beat this thing before it is too late for your loved ones.

Transitions

Life’s transitions
Freedom from this mortal world
Tears role down my face

Ashes

Ashes
Shattered into a billion tiny pieces
S
cattered in the wind as ripples shift
Along the vast expanse of time
Giving the illusion of super novas
Twinkling in the afterlife

Entangled

Tendrils of desire
Entangle my beating heart
Fragile seduction begins

My chest now empty
Shards of red around my feet
In fragmented reflection

Height

Height of the holidays
Picking out a Christmas tree
Fondest memories

Grief in shades of red and green
Flash between past and present

When I miss you most
I go into your closet
Take a long deep breath

Close my eyes and feel you near
Grateful for good memories
