even a headstone
shares too much information
about the deceased
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
I just don’t want to know…

her deep depression
despite the brilliant blossoms
on her loved one’s grave

Sometimes resurrection seems like a hoax.

in a desert land
dust whirling round the tombstones
morning, noon and night—
how helpful to remember
the same end awaits us all

in the potter’s field
far from any beach or strand—
a widow’s keening

Three Virtues

To submit one’s hope
to her who bore the Baby
is not a lost cause.
 
She will instruct you
in the tangled ways of love—
you have naught to fear.
 
Finding faith renewed
is the highlight of her way—
every pilgrim knows.
