Roses clipped on wavy strands
Flaunt festive, skeletal winsomeness.
Enjoying the culture of deceased,
Never felt so flavorfully exotic.
Parade masks & mottled confetti
Shift the living world’s essence.
Brilliant banners spread color;
Munificent love surrounds streets.
Henna tattoos with ornate details
Cascade their vines of hibiscus fire
Lashing out pink fury onto fireworks.
Loved ones awaken from eternal slumber
Celebrating the natural human cycle.
