you departed
even before you arrived ...
that morning long ago
when my womb
grew still

  as if one
could ever know
the afterlife …
all night long, the gypsy’s sign
blinks on    blinks off

space Michele L. Harvey - USA

towards true north
my soul
another compass

he never wanted
his name in granite –
slowly I dribble
his ashes along the path
we always walked together

  she saved
that message for years
to hear your voice
then with no warning
like you it is gone

    distant thunder
at the Feast of the Dead
a chill wind sighs
through the pampas grass
on an unnamed grave
