Oh! How I...

I still see you. I
see you in the
stars as I fly
the night's sky.

In sadness, I wait
for the evening. I
wait for the moon
to eclipse the sun.

Slowly, but surely
ends of you begin
to twinkle. And then
the rest of you.

Measured alongside
the titans and
dippers. Oh! How I
begin to fly.

Zoom, zoom, zooming
I trace you as you
were when, wondering
how you are now.

A poem in memory of three family members who have passed in as many weeks. Ay los miro.

I'm sorry for the loss you experience and happy you are finding consuelo in your writing. Your poem camptured that for me.
