You were a flower who seemed to be ever in bloom,
Your enigmatic smile, your quiet ways,
Your consistency, your personal manner,
Unmindful of the galleries, unpretentious contributions.
In the garden of Cirque you were a blossoming hidden by a rock,
But your aroma wafted around and enchanted those close by,
In the cosmic history you may only be a blip,
But ah! what a moment you lived.
Suffern, New York, September 23, 2018
This is a tribute written for Joanne Reinhardt, of 2 Fox Court, who left us
on September 17, 2018 at a mere age of seventy-one.
