Remember Me Now

it’s not flattery
but acknowledgement
rouses our spirits,
yet we save for eulogies,
lauds the dead will never hear


For Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge using synonyms only for the prompt words praise (flattery, acknowledgement, eulogies, lauds) and excite (rouses).
