Dia De…..

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 11:15 am


A dark night of
crowds bringin
beautiful marigolds
formerly filled with darkness
a cemetery now illuminated
now swarmed with candles keeping
vigil in the hope of their “return”.

Altars constructed beautifully
adorned with bright memories
of his days past or possibly recalling
times of her joyous living laughter.

Prayers intoned hoping just
wishing for one more moment just
one more meal that they could just
partake of with breads, fruits,
sweets, nuts, beverages being
set out in plenty.

An annual celebration
of a grand invitation
for his or her
past to return amongst
our present.




  1. Halloween is a festival I want to see at least once in its full glory 🙂

    • Make sure you get to see all 3 parts. The Halloween part itself is only the first 🙂 Hugs!!
