    -------------------------------------------


    Day of The Dead

    Old suits and old gowns
    They wore
    With fresh memories
    They mourn

    Dance of candle flames
    In their portrait windows
    Some semblance of life
    Through flickered shadows

    Dancing remembers
    Long passed footsteps
    Recounted smiles
    And reinvented anecdotes

    While ancient skeletal death
    In bony tattered rags
    Banters his scythe
    In slow melancholic celebration

    Generations joined
    By white boned fingertips
    He leads the waltz of death
    To a rhythm of life

    Falling tears glitter
    Remembrance in fireworks
    Crackle alive with music
    The departed dance

    Mausoleum and mound
    Lay their head hung flowers
    Beauteous colours of solemnity
    To ease the passing

    Old gowns and old suits
    They wear
    With new memories
    They mourn

    And the dance with antique
    Weary old death
    Carried his bones to be reborn
    On a newly laid bed
