THE DEATH OF AN ELDER SISTER where the light is brighter where the load is lighter where no pain can smite her

Gone to meet her Maker. where there are no tears where there are no fears where death disappears

Gone to meet her Maker.


Gone...but always in the mind leave us far behind where she'll surely find

A meeting with her Maker.

Coincidence or synchronicity? - that you should read 'In Her Passing' [about my dear auntie, my 'second mum'] and I find that you have written this sweet eulogy for your sister. Not being a christian I look on these departures as a return to the 'ocean of consciousness', from which we all appear as mere droplets of condensation in this particular multiverse, a comment which is NOT intended to cheapen the intensity of your loss. Think of this posting, not as sympathy, but empathy [feeling 'with', not 'for'.]

The pace is just perfect, 100% bang on. The content isn't really sad at all, despite it being the death of your sister (real sorry chuck) - it's really positive in fact. A fitting tribute.

My appreciation to those who kindly took the non-poetic time to offer condolences. Time is
the real salve and sufficient has elapsed to
say simply "thanks for the thought".

Lovely simplicity although it seems churlish to comment on the poetry at your time of loss. I hope its writing eases the pain in some small way.

Works well, MC - manages to be both poignant and philosophical. Commiserations on your loss.

As ever...clear, concise, gracefully con- cordant and (only apparently) simple.

Clears both the ears and the mind.
