Trick of Light

Just here,
with his toothy smile,
big bushy beard, warm
heart: gone

in a trick of Light that
whisked him sideways
out of his body so fast
there’s no telling how far
he’s travelled by now

into the Whirlwind alight
for him, bent on its sight.

  1. Thanks, Marilyn, I’m so glad it resonated with you! This one was for a friend who passed last week, just a short time after his diagnosis.
