All Hallows’ Eve, 2017
The leaves on the trees in the woods have fallen.
There is a misty air to the atmosphere.
I still live my life deliberately, but I am alone now.
Keeping you in mind, I will do what I can to help people in need; people who live with fear; people whose hearts are broken.
I will always fight for peace, justice, and equality.
I will continue to be your poet.
As I light the Jack O’Lantern…
as I distribute the treats…
I will keep in mind the broom, the clothing, and the hat that are near the door.
They are a reminder of the beautiful, magical person who once lived here.
