In the face of death

 

In the face of death I could see

 

that I was waiting

for a love to take me

topple me, last me ’til my last day-

 

waiting for a passion, to honour

him and plant seedlings again.

 

Souls at a zebra crossing

a morgue

Contradictions

 

Love

 

Life beginning again

like in that first moment.

  1. Love the originality of this! Also I’ve nominated you for the “Seven Things About Me Award” http://corsetedreams.wordpress.com/2012/08/30/seven-things-about-me-award/

  2. Thank you, I am honoured and will do the necessary soon!

  3. I used to think a lot about Life after Death
    But now I think more about Death before death
    Slowly, like a drying up fruit letting go
    Of its skin
    Beingness does not need hi-story.
    Whilst the skin is cracking open
    I flow with the Dharma.
