moment of silence, candle

The Garden of Repose

At this time, I pause to remember those who have crossed the Veil during the past year.  Among these, I wrote elegies for ...

Sally Ride -- "She Walks in Light and Darkness"
"Falling Stars" -- for a friend of a friend
Leola Edwards -- "The Lady of the House on Mitchell Street"
Maurice Sendak -- "The Emperor Comes"
Anne McCaffrey -- "Gone Between"

Also worth reading is the general memorial poem "Stones, Like Souls," regarding a Jewish custom.
