A Walk Through Pere Lachaise 

Following spray painted arrows on concrete stones

A flower child spins in circles, creating tie dye swirls, looking up, dancing for the sky

A mosaic of flower petals fit neatly together on the ground where they fell

Smoke from burning incense floats, creating cloud formations at our knees

Hints of the past emerge, a resurrection of another time

But this moment soon blows away

The dance ends

Petals are swept with the wind

The smoke melts into the ground

And I continue on my way, following spray painted arrows, but not empty handed

Time in Slow Motion

Cool breezes

Sitting with a calm heart

Gazing out into the quiet openness

The colors of nature blend together

 

Time inching slowly

For the first time in a while

There is time

Enjoying this rare moment for now

Waiting for that Day

Sometimes I wish I could rewind

When I try to pull back

And hide in the darkness

It still follows me

Even in darkness

I see its shadow

In the quiet of night

I hear the sound of its breath

Its presence fills my space

One day hopefully it will fade

And release me

I’m waiting for that day
