haiku my heart ~ Dia de los Muertos 2013


My father, husband,
grandparents, my lifeline... lights
the way before me.


Here is my home altar,
honoring the lives and deaths of my loved ones,
who have gone before me...

My relatives...

My Milton...

My father...

How grateful am I,
to have these days when the veils are thin,
to honor and remember
all the ways these amazing people,
touched and shaped my life...
