Categories: death, fire,


bones rise
in ashes,
furnace spews clouds
smelling putrid smoke,
tongues consume bodies all,
aeolian whispers fan
Varanasi’s fierce appetite,
prayer flags wave like a wick of hope
while the ruddy Ganges silently flows

The Fading Light

I watch the sun's smile gleam on the petal as it drifts beneath the Dogwood tree moving from sunlight to shadow we once burned bright like the sun shining on everyone until heaven spoke now you are gone and my light shines no more

Paris in Turmoil

held the
hand of a 
stranger lying 
face down with flying
bullets spraying the room, 
killing, striking so many
innocents frozen in terror.
As I fled I realized she was 
dead from terrorist's merciless melee.

Note: I wrote this about a recent story on the news that 
touched me deeply. I am praying for all those who are suffering.

Seek Elsewhere Death!

Feeder near the,
Window of my room,
So I can look outside,
See life again as God's gift,
And raise my broken spirits up.
She doesn't know how much she gives me,
But I vow to live because she loves me.

If he's here
Or has he slipped
To the other side
Past the reach of her hand
His mind grasps for her presence
Hearing the softness of her voice
Wishing himself back into her arms
Eyes open he sees her angelic face

Nearby Dale's Grave

Two fawn stood beyond Dale's grave and fed on fallen acorns. A doe, then a second deer haltingly drew near. One buck hung back where grass met woods, head raised, watching. . . like my dear brother - apart from family, yet not too far away.

In the House of Death

In a house too huge for them to maintain, a man hunched over with back pain lives with a disabled daughter and his very elderly wife. A recent heart attack has left her frailer and meaner. The doctor “says” she will die. Not willing to get up or walk for years, she had atrophied. Refusing sponge baths, meds, or a private nurse, she screams for her ill spouse whose little strength does little good. Time is crawling on the doomsday clock: two minutes to midnight.

The Gateway To Paradise

"Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind; "
Edna St, Vincent Millay

* *Death* *Will come* *At some point* *No one is spared* *And in the darkness* *Will appear a bright light* *That guides you to paradise* *Your family should not mourn you* *Because spirit and soul are at peace* *Having left behind all your earthly woes* ** ** ** ** ********* *********

Souls in Stardust

'down, down, down into the darkness of the grave
gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind' - 
Edna St Vincent Millay

We shall lie
At peace, beneath
Mountains of moonbeams
No servants or masters
Equal bells, everlasting
Shackles of suffering release
Over celestial bridges, where the
Cosmos recycles our souls in stardust.

life's last abyss

"Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave Gently they go, the                        beautiful, the tender, the kind" - Edna St. Vincent Millay

spread gently ...
death's frail surface
trembles with our grief
as each soul we cherish
plunges the gossamer veil ...
the warm arms of peaceful release
await there 'midst the tender darkness
to hold them close in their boundless dreaming.

Patient death

rich wetland
a lone kestrel .

Patient death beating,
fixed in  measureless blue.

Elegant white swans swim through
rare grasses greeting migrating
geese sliding in with the setting sun.

Darkness falls, who will sing the requiem?

I never imagined I’d see the day When you drew your final breath and died Nothing can ever prepare you For the loss of a loved one No one lives forever Cherished memories Stay forever In our hearts And our Minds.

The sky
By the ocean.
Blue lips of the drowned.
Bodies trapped, never found.
Blue songs sang to mourn the dead.
Souls in sorrow coping, hoping.
Blue water spout casting people out.
Empty graves with flowers the hue of blue.

Wild Rose

The ‘Wild Rose’ Drifts away with the morning,
tempest howls in discrimination
clouds inconsolable lament,
the creek no longer arid
replenish the river.
There ‘Wild Rose’ Fearful
taut disjointed;

When Priscilla Died

all Mom’s
kids left home,
Priscilla, our
Siamese, lived on
to well past twenty years
of age.  One day, approaching
her litter box, she raised one foot,
gave forth a strange raucous sound, and then
collapsed.  The cat quite literally croaked!

*croaked is also American slang for died.
(I had introduced Priscilla to our family. I had been selling 
cards all summer at age 14 so that I could buy myself a bike,
and a lady I sold cards to offered that cat to me! Boy, did
she live a long time.)

Seasonal Joys

double etheree

for spring
to roll round
at Easter time.
Resurgence of green
starts to wake up the world.
Warmer days tag chilly nights
saluting sunshine and showers.
Familiar trees and bushes blossom.
Spring begins to re-cultivate our minds
from the intermission of winter’s freeze.
Winter is harsh but with good reason
nature knows to slow down and rest.
Winter is stark yet she’s skilled -
sidetracking us with snow
and wiping out pests.
But best of all 
Christmas is
on her

Sweet Earth

Sweet earth,
You awe me.
Your daring wiz of 
Forging day and night.
How do you just do it?
Your belly of oceans and 
That breast of mountains and shorelines.
They say you were once a burning ball
Where do you really come from? I wonder.

The Cemetery Today

Today to
Father's Day no dad
To talk to and share thoughts
Too hot to stay and visit
The grave was in good shape weed free
Mother's parents and grandparents' graves
Need the grass pulled out and tending some...Sad

Life to Death - Today's contest

Being in love
Casting away doubt
Giving and receiving
All unconditionally
Leading to a happy marriage
Besotted so in love, life entwined
Until deaths sting strikes it's unwanted blow

City Street

under sky
scrapers, listen
To the city breathe 
blowing, huffing, puffing
hurry, push, eyes blankly stare
SCREAMS echoing in the alley 
go ignored in the sidewalk shuffle  
stench of urine, decay and APATHY

are diffused
pointillist view
the makings of things
reds    yellows   greens     and browns
in patch-dots of bright color
summer ends and autumn begins
a time which is both joyful and sad
death    but deep down    god’s promise of rebirth

The Glue of Tears

on earth -
hollow words
in my ears.  Pain
and violence stain
the daily news.  Trying
to make sense of senseless acts
I grow numb - coping with extremes,
Wondering if broken shards of peace
can be made whole using  the glue of tears.

Painful Denouements

Painful Denouements The stories, deep music, showcase sorrow and sad denouements depressing heart and mind with the grief of lost love, death. Shocking endings stab with torment; yet we crave woeful scenes even though opera brings heart-wrenching denouements. Sandra M.

Blessed Golden Life

Hulk rise
From Ocean's
Deepest depth bring
The Big Apple hope
Like an ancient Phoenix
Brought life to which died by flames
As Father Time _ Poseidon watch
To see if this resurrection starts 
A whole new era__ blessed golden life

been your favorite time so
today I come and placed a rose
at the foot of your grave- sites bedding
and I even placed one for mama too
