Vale Rose

We had a beautiful friend Rose, who left us today. She was dry and thoughtful, a Pinot Noir, Australian vintage.

Her life lived full and joyfully like wine

now the last translucent drop faded

 a rose on her sheet on her hospital bed, gently placed

We will remember her life

with her happiness

her sadness

salty

traces

on

faces
