“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.”

― Mary Oliver

The sky erupts
In electric psychedelic colors
we are born with the clouds
bleeding feelings

carrying him closer

I turn this metal
in my hand
I turn it and I
See love



Even though he is gone
I turn this in my hand
It bleeds meaning

And I
Carry him closer,
I carry him closer to


And the colors bursting
Like the flowers
Watered by angels’ tears
Will carry him home
So he can be
Born with the clouds
