Where You Rest

by Regina

In this quietude, this respect,
a place for the sparrows' songs
where the marble garden
is gleaming white in afternoon sun
and luminous in the comfort,
the sleepiness of moonbeams,
where you rest.

Young women, you wore the blue,
the color, the banner of your bravery,
when your blood ran,
fallen,
souls released, joyous, to theĀ 
infinity of the heavens,
where you rest.

In loving memory of Natalie Corona, Chateri Payne,
and all other fallen police officers.
