My Daughter's Window
For a moment
Frozen at the window
A peaceful vision glorifies.
The placid tree thrusts into
Our luminous sky.
Letting go in death
A dull gold leaf
To its grave of memories.
For a moment,
Frozen in the window of my soul.
Immersed in a disquieting vision.
Knowing I will never see you again.
