Memorial wreath cast out to Sea

At our beach they gather.
To honor soldiers, loved ones... ordinary people.
Guards salute.
A cannon is fired.
The wreath is cast into the sea.
It floats away.
Far away.
A lump in my throat.
Sand in my eye.
It gets me every time.

Alvin Ailey's "Revelations" Bohoy

Alvin Ailey has dancied back to Boston.  
"Revelations" is the must see. Sculpted, athletic bodies swathed in white, ruffled dresses, parasol on high, floating silk ribbons of water. Spiritual and beautiful.
