Nov 2 –all souls

 on this holy of holies

with all souls crossing the threshold

she came to me

traversing that tenuous veil

between there and here

a wisp of a thing

one moment a dream

 the next a reality

my heart full of wonder

at not-at-all what i’d expected

on this day of re-membering–

connecting the generations–

I’d been looking behind

instead of before

and failed to notice the notion

that to this stunning arrival

the ancestor might be me
