NaPoWriMo 2016 Day Three

Two Epitaphs

Even amidst fierce flames
The golden lotus can be planted

The inkwell and letters
had been cleared away
                                      but
she is never short of flowers.
No lotuses, just daffodils.

Stones on graves
                           are a Jewish thing,
and despite the controversy
she thought she was
a bit of a jew.

Not far away, Asa says
he was foolish enough
to have been poet.
