In Loving Memory
Reflections for the Mind, Heart, and Soul of Mi Amiga...
Emita Con Cariño & Respeto Inmenso
Love poems evolve slowly ... in quiet, empty ... reverential spaces ...
filled with sun or moon ... where the essence of who we are travels to places beyond...where time ... and space ... and matter ... don’t matter ...
where massed densities ... dissolve into ...
a trillion tiny particles of Energy & Light...where we are ...
I Am... united, whole, weightless and Free!
