Light on the Day She Died

The ocean turned

Flame lit

The water rose to the sky
The sea had no end

Marigolds fell from the sun
Fell to the soil and rose up as little suns

This is how God speaks

Silent in the moving rays of light
Warm on the skin of the flower
The moon leaves without another word

The day enters
And enters again
I have regrets and they visit

They are the birds from the tips of the trees
They ascend up with the spreading light
They break open in front of the sun

There are too many to count
