|today 3 random blooms|
I think they're for my friend Jim
today we celebrate his life
[and in case you're paying attention Jim...
my last piece had 22,848 stitches]
you will be missed
Though we need to weep your loss,
You dwell in that safe place in our hearts
Where no storm or night or pain can reach you.
You placed smiles like flowers
On the altar of the heart.
Your mind always sparkled
With wonder at things.
Though your days here were brief,
Your spirit was alive, awake, complete.
