In memoriam

Burnt parchment-
leaves of a life
on yellowed papers
leaving
a void of words
where our
friendship bloomed-

and sorrow,
a blanket removed
on a shivering frame,
exposing the skeleton
beneath a grey sky,
your death wired
with the beads
upon my neck,
leaving marks there,
the marks of your life-

remembered,
in a sachet of your beauty,
its scent still lingering
on our simple lives,
your flowers have been
gathered now,
in heaven,
and bloom anew
upon His face.

This are such beautiful words written to someone who meant so much to you. I am so very sorry for your loss, as true friends are a most precious gem in our ring of life and can never be replaced once they have passed on.
Take care,
Sherry

Michelle this is so sad. There isn't anything I can say except you have my deepest condolences, and I will say a prayer for the soul of your friend.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and may He bless the soul of Irene, who was a very dear friend of Michelle's. May He also be at your side too, Michelle, and walk with you always, and guide your steps. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

A sad lament done in a beautiful perspective.

Beautifully sad. Reminds me of a poem by John Betjeman (can't remember what it is called) about a small thing someone left behind - some crochet work - and the scent of lavender lingering on the wool.

Beautifully timed post too coz Robin at PLT asked me if I have any biog info on you (and a pic would be good) You said a while ago we could lift ot from AD, but if you would like to send an updated version or a different pic, mailto:
robinouzmanhislop ( at ) yahoo.com
or
ianrthorpe ( at ) yahoo.com

Well gotta go and create some biog information for some Enochian demons now. Its a project I'm doing for The Edinburgh Centre so there might be some free festival tickets in it for me. Fingers crossed. (BTW we are going to have the demons take up residence in the underground city, the catacombs beneath Edinburgh's old town. I've been down there and its very scarey.
cheers
Ian

My condolences on the loss of a friend or relative. This poem is so overwhelimingly good. It's words are so simple, but with character, style and saddness personified. A good, a very good, tribute.
