Father Son Holy ghost

Author: Kara L.C. Jones

This follow up collection to Flash Of Life was a year in the making, and tracks the authors path as she heals from the death of her first born son. These poems take a critical look at familial relationships before and after the death, and show some solid step toward healing. It's a story of survival, and if you found Flash Of Life compelling or important in your life, this collection, too, is a must-read!

My Dear Son,

Because it was the last chance I had to see you;
the last chance before they took your tiny 6 pound body
and made you into sticky ashes for the marble jar;
because it was the last chance I had
to feel your weight, your silken hair, your soft bruised skin;
because it was the last chance I had,
and I did not take it.

My Forever Love,
