In remembrance ~
Sudden pain and loss
Clothed in fear and dread
Gone from love
Lost to us
Reaching to see
Brought forward again and again
By life’s relentless unfolding
Death’s forever gnawing off edges
From around our souls
When does this stop?

Its stops when we remember
The joy and faith Moon lived by
Cherished friends and writers
Moon encouraged beginner writers like me ~

We can carry part of her legacy forward
By remembering to do more of what she
Always asked us to do more of ~
Write ~
