We Remember You

by Yolo Akili Robinson

Somewhere there is a mountain, 

warmed with the witness of your joy

somewhere there is a river

rinsing the moon free of your sorrow

somewhere 

in the Goldenrod you gave us

yarrow for our navels

to yield the wounds; 

There

You are always remembered

always held

as honeysuckle to our hearts

a luminous landscape

grieving 

while  laughing aloud in lavender

fields

our

inheritance

is your indignation.

and we will carry this gift

as bails of wheat on

sun kissed shoulders

to rings of sorrow

and 

stars sanguine

sifting through  sacred texts you left us

with a tender rage

that teaches us 

to remember.
