Elephant Stepping on Toes

The angels were called last night
To escort a friend that died
His pain is finally gone and it’s
Hard to be happy asking why

Some places celebrate their death
Mourning is selfish, and doesn’t help
We want to hang on to them but
Hoping our pain and loss are shelved

Washing Wishes

Floating Petal

Cast upon the waters
The petals float away
Remaining ashes roil
Washing wishes away
