I'm holding vigil for a friend who is doing the hard work
of making her way to the other side.
This photo is taken from her altar when I stayed with her awhile back.
I was supposed to see her today probably for the last time
and to sit with others who have loved her dearly
to meditate, hold vigil and send her as much love
as she might need to soar.
But our time together was cancelled by her caregiver at the last moment.
So I'm holding my own vigil.
This photo perfectly fits how I'm feeling.
I'm holding the beauty of her flame,
her precious life, in my heart.
If you're so moved, please say a prayer for her journey.
