In Memoriam - Ronnie Easterbrook

In Memoriam – Ronnie Easterbrook

Quietly
with gathering of night
news of leaving,
Ron has gone home.
“Is it nothing to you who pass by?”
the scream evil ones wished not to hear
resonates across night unending
protest of his tortured body
flesh clinging to protuberant bone
night and death
were long time companions
during wait vulnerable
to predatory monster
watching a sick old man
rage into the fading light
“Is it nothing to you who pass by?”
Law wallows in wickedness.
abomination of desolation
where it ought not to be
ignighting flames of righteous anger
“Is it nothing to you who pass by?”
Murdering state pursued
by all unfolding truth,
evil beyond the bounds of utterance
rest in peace, soldier of humanity
gone home now far from enveloping night
“Nothing to them that pass by”

here, among the cycles of nature
your memory visits –
go home quietly
return to spirit,
waiting divine abiding
Trees move in rivers
Of wind
I whisper your honour
Now you are one
With all creation,
Death is freedom,
One with nature,
One with the vastness
Of the gull anthemed
unending sky
at peace on your journey
go home quietly Ron
Rest in Peace
