Alameda Post - palm trees at sunset

Peace

Pick up the ashes and leaves.

Comfort the grief.

Dust off the uncertainty.

Silence the wind of worries.

Allow the trees to breathe and the sky to see.

Loosen the grip around the hearts.

Release, release, release.

Liberate the energy of the deceased.

Elevate in peace.

Let the people and environment heal.

Prayers, blessings, and peace.
