The Cosmology of Jane

the cloud of witnesses
opens its arms wide
to the presence of Jane.

Jane runs to them at last
resting in their tender

knowing the celebration
is just beginning as
the guest of honor has

she feels the hospitality of
joy, frankincense, and the
heartbeat of the cosmos
stirring as all raise a glass
of living water.

    May your mother truly see you now and acknowledge the courage you choose to stay connected. I asked about her, not knowing she had passed so recently. You will live to be older and wiser until all you have to share will be shouted into the wind then return to silence before the Holy One as your gift of incense. Shalom

      She actually hasn't passed recently. I just didn't process the grief until recently. Grief delayed is...well...bad!
