Mom & Dad's Ashes

i will follow you

you sit on the bookcase
next to my cat
all three in limbo
waiting to drink the wind
spread your wings and fly
onto your next adventure
like the stories in the books below
i will let you go sometime soon
feather your ashes on the pines
say a silent prayer
for what you brought to life
the life you gave to me
together on earth and together in death
i know not where you are now
but i know that i will follow you there
with love

(Dedicated to my mother and father…who are waiting for me.)

I write poetry and fiction; create doodle art; do genealogical research; take photographs of the world around me; think about odd things; hike the red rocks; and obsess on food.
