A Poem for My Friend: "Singing Voice"


I got a news of my friend's passing this morning.
For all morning I was thinking about him and came up with this poem.
--------
Today (Jan.11), I learned that the the youngest victim of the Arizona shooting was a girl who had been born on Sept. 11, 2001, and loved to sing. I would like to dedicate this poem to her, too.

Lovely tribute to your friend. Another jigsaw piece you will miss, but, it appears, will fondly remember.

Good wishes.

Thank you, Carlos san.
I think my friend's son will, when he settles down, compose music to the poem.

Having heard the sad news, i could not sit still so I took a walk. Waling seems to have calming effect, and when I return to office, I wrote this poem.

i know what you mean Kuni-san, prayers do it for me -- i can't and don't follow news of death; it numbs me so much!

but writing is cathartic,
