Shadorma For Joan

tomorrow
a journey begins
on the road
headed east
(not that there’s much east of here)
into the sunrise

ocean waves
await her ashes;
family
assembled
steps aboard the final launch
sets her free at last

free at last
but not forgotten
remembered
remembered
alive amid her children
ash is never ash
