"Odes to Caroline"


A Tanka and a Haiku Chain
She loved red roses
Champagne and best white cocaine
And she loved to dance

She'd make love like no tomorrow
And died dancing ~ yesterday



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Caroline
~~~~~

You were a wild child
Like a banquet, feasting life
Beauty dancing past.

Are you somewhere still?
Cooking wonderful food, that smile
Heavenly sunshine.

You were the whirlwind
Or a star brightly burning 
In-can-des-cent-ly.

You lived three lifetimes
With your lust for adventure
Gone now, Carolina.

Still loved and still missed
There hasn’t been a party
Like your last, last dance.
