In Memory of Our Beloved Friends

Northwest Indian Memorial on Death Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glint on snow. I am the sunlight on the ripened grain. I am the autumn rain. When you awake in the morning hush, I am the swift uplifting rush Of birds circling in flight. I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there. I do not sleep. AUTHOR UNKNOWN -- from "Animal Blessings" by June Cotner Picture of Bruno from Breeding, Training, Management, Diseases of Dogs by Francis Butler published by the author 1865 Nunquam Dormio "I Never Sleep" May the breaking of our hearts as you leave open us to even greater love for all beings.

Spring by Mary Oliver

I lift my face to the pale flowers
of the rain. They're soft as linen,
clean as holy water. Meanwhile
my dog runs off, noses down packed leaves
into damp, mysterious tunnels.
He says the smells are rising now
stiff and lively; he says the beasts
are waking up now full of oil,
sleep sweat, tag-ends of dreams. The rain
rubs its shining hands all over me.
My dog returns and barks fiercely, he says
each secret body is the richest advisor,
deep in the black earth such fuming
nuggets of joy!
