Sister Carmela’s Passing

It takes me a long time, often years, to smooth the flow of a formal poem. That’s true of Sister Carmela’s Passing. I began it more than ten years ago after an unexpected experience south of Carmel. I sent the resulting villanelle to the Braided Way three years ago and forgot about it. The editor dropped me a note informing me that she published it. I’d like to share it with all of you. https://braidedway.org/sister-carmelas-passing/
