Did you happen to look up to the heavens Sunday evening,
September 8, 2013, shortly after sunset?
I did, because I knew the Moon and Venus
would be sharing space,
close enough to capture them in the same frame.
I looked up yesterday evening, September 9, 2013, and already they had parted ways.
The Moon is easily recognizable. Venus is the small white dot, to the right of the Moon.
Thanks to fellow bloggers, I am now aware of this weeks significance. It is Suicide Awareness Week, from Sunday, September 8 until Sunday, September 15. I will always remember you, dear brother, even though I no longer see you.
Your smile etched
in the interior,
Your hug warmed
the cold wind,
it now penetrates.
Your laughter lifted
me to the moon,
You told me not to worry,
you were doing fine.
You were not okay,
you were wrong.
