So Sudden

Dedicated to my dear friend, Jimmy Laney

 

rereading his letters
that last breath
so sudden

the flowers
bend towards his warmth
graveside

scent of gardenias
everywhere
his absence

his smile
flits through my today and yesterday
yellow butterfly

the sky
is crying today
his empty hammock

a light
at the end of the bed
my old friend

reborn
when spring next arrives
his lilies
