Funeral

Rating: 4.8

men in black,
women also.
I've seen them a couple of times
since I was a kid,
and some more
till I die.

Oh, the gathering of most family members happens so rare, you describe it so well here! Thank you for sharing, a good read. Tsuya in Japan is one of the most controversial things I have felt, a mixture of sadness with happiness of meeting and getting closer to relatives.

Looks like the black outfit has created an impression within you to last. Nice way to express your feeling.

Thank you. People are in black at funerals in Japan. Sometimes it makes me think of life and death.
