Audre’s Gone

 

Audre’s gone.

Do not mourn.

Make a river flow

from the lake that feeds us.

She would have wanted that.

She watches and she wants that still.

 

Marlon’s gone.

No, he’s here beside us.

Dancing in the shadows.

Planting seeds

that only we can nurture.

 

Pat has moved on.

She was always moving

inside out to show that

courage is an

inside out kind of

thing.

 

Essex with his soft and

lulling voice

soothes us and

challenges us

still.

 

Our warrior poets

haven’t died

because

they used the

voice, the

life, the

love in them

courageously

each moment

to inspire us

forever.
