Bad News Bearing Morning

Bad news bearing morning;
the body fades;
buried sparks of life.
Sadness seasons,
endings at inconvenient interludes.
Alternative ways of knowing and honoring families,
colliding atoms floating through space.
Memory energy,
aliveness voiced and set,
marks of a life well lived.
