Dia de los muertos – podcast

Listen to a new podcast for dia de los muertos (day of the dead). Day of the dead marks the finale of a three day period where the veil between the living and the dead opens and mortals interact with the spirit world.

today we live

 a day to celebrate

tonight we sit  – with death

offering the departed favorite treats

amidst candles glittering on marigold petal graves

today we mourn

hearts lifted respectfully

tonight we sit – with spirit

offering heartfelt prayers

amidst the fiesta with gunfire sounding in the distant night

 

Ali – November 2, 2017
