November 1st, The Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.
“To die laughing must be the most glorious of all glorious deaths!” —“The Assignation” ~ Edgar Allan Poe
Today I want to celebrate Dia de los Muertos in the garden. Dear Toads I want you to draw inspiration from your favorite dead poet (s) and write a poem to honor him/her. It can be about the poet, their poetic style, a line from a poem, one of their quotes, etc., go where the suggestion leads you. I only ask you write a new poem and name the poet who inspired it.
As always please add your poem to Mr Linky and visit your fellow poets to read their poetic offerings.
