They refused

to bury us

in the knotted masks of tall grasses

before setting fire to the cairn of chaff

~

our children

lie dormant

as seeds of light

~

we

as we were

are gone forever

 ~

now

defying gravity

I am here to witness

love breathing

~

through my own flesh

I want to thank my fellow traveler, Geo Sans. Even though it is a solitary journey, no one goes alone.
