Burial

My grudge
deserves a proper burial
some service or prayer
and I grieve
let go of the pain
that still darkens
my soul. These shadows
creep up and leap upon me
but I’m tired of their claims
on my heart.
No more. This past
is buried now
and I might visit,
leave a stone,
from time to time, but
life is calling sweetly
and its time to
leave the graveside.
