Memento Mori

We think of the dead

as they connect to us

Through stories and pictures

ours and others

Through the physical reminders

left in their wake

Those who collect the physical

objects of dead women

Can separate the antiques

from the possessors

Can pretend that the light

catching the glass

is new to their eyes only

Memory of what -and who- have passed is always difficult.


For more memories of the dead and the living, my fantasy novel, The Guests of Honor, is available here. Its sequel, With Honor Intact, can be found here.
