Ancestral Flame

Paging through letters

Paging through time

Searching for answers

From the ghost of

A long forgotten memory

An unresolved puzzle of 

A life richly embraced

By an ancestor whose spirit 

Reaches out from the grave

With a longing for acknowledgement,

A delicate touch through the chasms

Of crossed timelines,

Crossed stars

In the ethereal longitude and latitude of the mind

For a tale untold is a person forgotten,

A loss through true death,

A loss that is softened and erased

As we revive the tale,

We restore their being to

A state of immortality

That can never be destroyed 

As long as we talk and search and remember and love.
