Update on my late friend

I have more information on my friend who was found dead in his home. I didn’t find out from the police, but by searching the on-line news. I found video clips of the television news from that day and the next. (I don’t have a television at home.)

It is apparent that he was murdered.

May God rest his soul. May the murderer find peace of soul.

I’ll finish today with “Hum” by Ann Lauterbach.

The days are beautiful 
The days are beautiful.
 
I know what days are.
The other is weather.
 
I know what weather is.
The days are beautiful.
 
Things are incidental.
Someone is weeping.
 
I weep for the incidental.
The days are beautiful.
 
Where is tomorrow?
Everyone will weep.
 
Tomorrow was yesterday.
The days are beautiful.
 
Tomorrow was yesterday.
Today is weather.
 
The sound of the weather
Is everyone weeping.
 
Everyone is incidental.
Everyone weeps.
 
The tears of today
Will put out tomorrow.
 
The rain is ashes.
The days are beautiful.
 
The rain falls down.
The sound is falling.
 
The sky is a cloud.
The days are beautiful.
 
The sky is dust.
The weather is yesterday.
 
The weather is yesterday.
The sound is weeping.
 
What is this dust?
The weather is nothing.
 
The days are beautiful.
The towers are yesterday.
 
The towers are incidental.
What are these ashes?
 
Here is the hate
That does not travel.
 
Here is the robe
That smells of the night
 
Here are the words
Retired to their books
 
Here are the stones
Loosed from their settings
 
Here is the bridge
Over the water
 
Here is the place
Where the sun came up
 
Here is a season
Dry in the fireplace.
 
Here are the ashes.
The days are beautiful.

  1. Cris and SD, thank you both. It was a terrible shock and really threw me for the first few days. I’ve settled down to grief and mourning now, which just take time.

    I know what days are.

    This is “weather” and will change.
