Eulogy For Cele

When the news came from home
Spirited by the waves
That you had gone
I snapped my fingers beside my ears
To still the steps of fate
Now
I weave a basket of words
To accompany you on your journey
If you listen really hard
You will hear the trilling of my voice
As it calls your name
And reminds you of what you were
What you are
I garner a harvest of euphonies
To lament my loss of you.
