Rememberance Haiku

Magic moments, all
Wish I could have soared with you
Rampant musings flowed

Celebrating Dia de los Muertos in Mexico is my idea of Heaven…but I wasn’t able to go this year…in the flesh, that is.
I was, however, acutely aware of the days that the lucky entourage were there…

thinking of where they might venture that day,

wondering if they were visiting friends,

or were they dressing up in black, with painted faces to go to the Jardin?

Did they have some totally new adventures?

What treasures awaited them at the Tuesday Market this year?

Were there jicama tacos on the day’s agenda?

My heart soars just thinking about the the adventures they all had…waiting for my next chance to be a part of the magic that is Mexico once again…
