[Pink Anthurium Lilies from google dot com]

between lush green lawns
a path leads to the church door -
her casket adorned

Saturday morning, that’s yesterday I attended the funeral service of my friend’s mother. She was given a beautiful and just perfect eulogy by her only daughter.

None is travelling
Here along this way but I,
This autumn evening.
