We Met in Passing

The Day of the Dead is a celebration of loved ones, no longer with us.  Here it is a time of remembrance of all things good about lives shared; here death is a part of life.


We met in passing

spring blossoms forgetfulness

even loved plants die


 The moment dreams turn into memories,

memories turn to dust

in the mind


After the death rattle,

the sound of memories fading,

all meaning left behind


The empty carcass

carried over cobblestones

carried past the fading senses

of old men sitting

on white plastic chairs,


Bread, salt, water,

essence consumed

after entering the underworld

With the passing seasons

who will lay down

the path of petals

when no one

is left to remember

The photography focuses on Lake Chapala and the surrounding villages that include Ajijic, Chapala, Jocotepec an so much more.  In addition to my pics many have been contributed by Antonio Ramblés  . Visit Antonio Ramblés travels blog at www.antoniorambles.com
