The Death of my Cousin's wife, April 17th 2011

Zum Tod der Frau meines Cousins am 17. April 2011 / The Death of my Cousin's wife, April
17th 2011/ La muerte de la mujer de mi primo en abril 17 de 2011  (Kintaishi)


Ein ausgelöschtes Leben
Die Zeit vorweg genommen
Verschwimmende Gedanken 
Wie Bilder, die verblassen


An annihilated life
Anticipated  in time
And then almost blurring thoughts
Like some fading images


Una vida aniquilada
Anticipado en tiempo 
Borrosos pensamientos
Desvaneciendo imágenes

    Thank you for sending the paintings of the Easter eggs, Gert. I've missed seeing your new work and I'm sure others have missed you as well. I'm sure you are spending time with your cousin now. Hope you managed to enjoy some time over Easter. Love, Carolyn

    I am truly sorry about your Cousin's passing, Gert. At these times it's difficult to find words to comfort another for their loss but be assured of a prayer for her and her family. Love, Annalise
