“A Departed Soul”

On raven’s wing
O’er sea of tranquility
Flight of her spirit


A departed soul
Ascends with flaming sunrise
Dewdrops dry swiftly

  2. Just visited Poe’s home where the raven pecks away at the upstairs window even when there is no breeze. Very nice ascension…

    Oh, so beautiful! Coincidentally, dragonfly is the symbol my late husband and I chose before his departure, as a signal for when he would be near in spirit. He has used it a number of times!

    Raven departure and flaming ascension. What a way to go! Strong nature-filled images.
