A to Z Challenge – Observation

OBSERVATION: Notice or being noticed, perception, faculty of taking notice

 

 

He lay there in stillness

in echo friendly casket

Arms gently folded

Hands entwined in rich red pohutakawa blossom

Wearing suit

that fitted so well at son’s wedding,

several years ago

Last worn then

now hiding thin frail human

An alter of flowers, fruit and vegetables

the rewards of years of planting, nurturing and growing

His last harvest

Outside sun shines glorious light beams

Rays of love to all

Family, friends, loved ones

Tears, laughter

Stories, emotion

Pure

He is at peace

this his  last night on earth

Farewell
