Memorial Service:
To Ali Akbar Furutan

The lover died
serving the Cause of the Beloved,
serving humanity,
and scattering the seeds of unity

Scarlet edged blossoms--
their dual toned petals open to the night,
and their sacred scents warming autumn's chill--
share the water of life
with apricot tinged gladiolus
and green leaf filler
stand in crystal vase
that is setting on a baby grand.

A picture of the ascended
smiles at us from the stage;
on each side of the enlarged photograph
honor guards
of burgundy satin roses--
in glass vases--
set on white pedestals.

Accompanied by the scent of roses,
and the prayers of the Baha'is
he ascends
Through all the worlds of God
blazoning the name of Baha'u'llah.
