           For the innocent ones, killed and injured, May 23rd, 2014. Isla Vista, Santa Barbara, CA

                                       May you                                      continue

                                       in         our hearts
                                                                                          we

will

tell many stories                                     your  short

                 life         which is                                               o u r

life &                                    undulates            in sky
deep
glades

now an infinite meditation

                we will touch
                your shoulders as we once did & it          will
                      be       different     we will comfort each              other

& walk

together a g a i n (with you)

 

                     Juan Felipe Herrera
                     Poet Laureate of California,
                     May 27th, 2014
