Post Script

Fear not:
Words shall turn to dust
in the shortest of time

Yet while poetry is within us
breath gently
& notice intuitions
coming to mind

Poems are portals
to different realities

Let many voices
resonate through you
& somehow
– without forgetting
how close your funeral is –
smile, laugh, and sing!

Jack: The idea of flowering is perennial.
Juanita: It's a good metaphor for life: endless cycles of growth and decay.
