dia de los muertos, "days of the dead".
when the doors open between the past and present
allowing the reunion of hearts and souls.
when the veil between the worlds becomes so porous
the living and the dead converge, for a sacred returning
that defies space and time.
in a sea of flickering candles,
a tendril of incense,
an out pouring of love so comforting that we are
swept away in its profound understanding
that life is sweeter shared,
honored, treasured, exalted, cherished,
heaped with flowers,
blazing with candle light, embraced with passion.
i am so honored to be welcoming everyone here at
recuerda mi corazon
co-hosting dia de bloglandia with
stephanie at the mango studio.
each story of loved ones shared is profound in
uniting our hearts in the house of belonging.
be sure to link at both our blog homes,
each stop along this flower chain is one more heart
touched with the light of love.
as you enjoy your journey from one offrenda to the next,
please leave a note of acknowledgement along the way.
i am sitting in warm candle light as each of your
offerings wash over my heart. i too am filled
with the presence and gratitude of our ancestors
and feel so grateful for the love we are all
so blessed by.
my offrenda is a simple one,
a pure white prayer for peace.
