Dancing Graves: 2002_Ink_Drawing4 by Carol Hershey

12/9/08_Make-up_Poem1 by Betina Hershey Russo

"Today is a day for
Dancing in front of the graves
Of those we miss,"
Sang the swaying women.
They moved with the fervor
Of joy-bound mourning.
They hung tinsel and flower petals
Over the tall, metal crosses,
Those cold grave markers
Stabbing the earth
Where rotting bodies lay,
Abandoned by souls
With the journey of life
Once again ahead.
