Andrea, this is so sad but So beautiful because it makes me feel that,the dead aren't dead but just not here anymore, as in we can't see them, abit like they've moved country. I've always thought of it like that but then can not explain the no contact if that makes sense. This has an eerie yet tranquil feel to it.
Andrea, just beautiful! Another write confirming why you are one of my favorites. The imagery is so rich with sadness and longing-amazing!

Wonderful, visual poetry here (for me, anyway!)
Hearing/seeing the dead in film/photographs is often something I think about as well.
"Death is so final but the dead will come to my empty table and watch me cry" - it's those left behind that suffer most, often. The idea of a person keeping company with only those who have already passed is a very sad and moving concept.
