Bells and Cries

A lovely lady;
Growing inside, a new life.
A man in a tux.

Another bell rings now.
Final grades, balanced college offers,
Off to another adventure.

Damp ground, headstones.
Growing inside, a new life,
Done with their adventures.

a minute silent . . .
the cackling of a child
in the hall

the cow feeds 
on grass sprout . . .
goats bleat

Dead bodies, a cry

Scatters flowers of purple and grey,

Where his coffin lays.

Dark Horse

thick blanket of death

from the forest, heavy mist

lone dark horse comes.

This Lifeless Tot -- Florida

an innocent child,
a nineteen-month-old baby,
was senselessly shot;

cold drive-by shooter
killed a cherished little boy--
with a heartless plot

endless tears of pain--
as we remember the love
of this lifeless tot

*baby was not the intended target

Anything Goes: Life In a Loop

What has life in store?
Milk on bed and milk when dead.
Why sulk all along?

P.S.This poem is based on the Hindu customs of burial. Attending a funeral recently taught me this very essence of Life.

The Rest

rain begins to fall
                          sorrow borrowed from teardrops
                                   ash and dust look on
