Mandala for Shirley

Mandala for Shirley by Cathy Ulrich

Shirley passed yesterday.
Smart, caring, kind,
she loved art, music,
friends, family and Chuck.

Shirley helped many
see their potential.
She taught people
to work together.

Shirley made art that
expressed her beautiful soul.
Mother Earth and those who love her
were Shirley’s themes.

Shirley is fine.
Better than fine,
she is magnificent.
No longer afraid,
Shirley shines.
