Rainbow Tears

January 5, 2012 by admin | Filed under Animals/Pets, Grief.


Blazing orange, vibrant red,
Golden yellow,
Wyatt is dead!

Gentle gray, charcoal brown,
His blackened ashes
Mark the ground!

Frothy white and midnight blue.
King Neptune,
I give my dog to you!

Peaceful green,
A mournful sigh,
Rainbow colors drop from my eye!

~ July 23, 1997 ~

We spread Wyatt’s ashes at his favorite spot at Dog Beach, San Diego, California.  A spot that will always bring sunshine to my heart.  After spreading them, I threw out his favorite orange retriever toy into the channel to be carried out to sea or perhaps another dog would find it and cherish it.
