Samhain 2010

It is the time of year when we remember

Remember the fallen

People we have loved and lost

Those who have moved on to the light

The peaceful


The owl is my reminder of those loved and lost

He flies at twilight between day and night

The living and the dead


It does not scare me all this

I do not fear my loved ones coming back to visit

Coming back to stroke my hair when I can’t sleep

Showing that they still love through the veil


I carry the memories with me

Concorde, teaching me to use a camera,

The fish pond, peeling the vegetables in the living room for dinner

The strength and love I will carry for all my life
