    As wind sings between headstones
    Pushing leaves across their marble faces
    Over the names and dates all but forgotten
    Remaining vestiges of full lives and those cut short
    Legacies of happiness and sadness alike
    Above, a solitary cumulus drifts below an overcast sky
    Between them the memories of those it passed by
    Their laughter and tears indistinguishable one from the other
    Though the canvas of these visions once sharp and distinct
    Now a Gaussian blur they are still pirouetting dreams
    Of what might have been and what still might be
    Of little consequence to you or me
    When we are dust and none recall
    Others will savor their flavors
    Rejoice them as new
    The same wind will blow
    Same clouds drift by
    Our spirits
    Carried in the wake…
