death

End

a tarnished heaven
day burnished gold dissolving
the edge of the world

Islands

the outlying isles  
a life archipelago  
yet still the bell tolls

Obituaries

in narrow columns  
hang serif painted portraits  
of life abstracted

Sunset

cold the sunset sky  
rose gold and ever paling  
love and beauty die

Legacy

in his wooden box  
the faded silver echoes  
my father’s remains

Ashes

I stand in ashes  
dead bequeathing nourishment  
reviving scorched earth

Alone

cold death encroaches  
breath condensing loneliness  
jewel dewed despair

Temporary

these borrowed atoms  
life’s dust configuration  
death will rearrange

Churchyard

at the churchyard wall  
where love’s first kisses lingered  
lay me down again
