Death (An Alternate View)


Death an enigma
The transcendence of life
From sentience to an cryptic abyss
A pilgrimage of the soul
To your irrevocable resting place
An arcane universe
In the midst of Elysian Fields
Where the grass is greener
Where roses bloom in the absence of thorns
To indulge in the promise of second chances
To renew your commitment to the living
To realize lost or forgotten dreams
To pursue in earnest the holy grail of love
In a universe where age stands still
And flesh is entwined in golden threads
Where beauty surpasses
The perfection of Adonis or Aphrodite
As man acclimatizes to an abode of angels
Gazing at his new found wings
Oh the beauty of death
For it liberates your world
To find an infective serenity
Amidst familiar faces one knew as
Kith and kin

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Out of the bosom of the Air
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
