Everlasting Jubilee

“Our death is our wedding with eternity.”
― Rumi

Today we set my son’s ashes free into the ocean. It was a spur of the moment thing.
The day was magical and the ocean was warm..

a soul set free

The ocean received your body,
waves absorbed my tears.
I heard your song of freedom
whispering in my ears.

As you dance in cosmic vistas,
far from Earthly pain
your spirit keeps on soaring;
remembrance forever remains.

There are no goodbyes in heaven,
just a lucent diaphanous veil.
I touch you with my spirit
as though I’m interpreting braille.

Your path is festooned with flowers,
as far as the eye can see,
in a star bedazzled universe,
everlasting jubilee!

festooned with flowers

and as we drove home, this magnificent creature honored us with his presence….

  1. Dearest Ally, it’s been long since I dropped by your blog. I feel I’ve missed so much. Your loss sounds fresh in your touching and beautiful tribute poem;

    “There are no goodbyes in heaven,
    just a lucent diaphanous veil.”

    Sending strength and love!
