Haiku for Today’s Requiescat

Sun shows up our pain,
life goes on now when she ends,
if only bells tolled

Requiem

chagall backdrop

Today, this morning after
we left you alone
in your bronze home
aside the dirt-mound,
cordoned off
by rope and flowers,
I expected to wake
to the incredible weightlessness
of cold and sorrow,
but instead
I rise to nothing
but extreme desire
and eternal yearning
to perform spectacular acts
of radical kindness.
