Mourning

TS Death & LossPosted by G. Thompson Wed, March 30, 2016 21:34:34

On the Death of a Young Boy by Drowning

I

We sing our nightingale tunes
In the echoes of a darkness that eclipses all night
Each alone & yet identical in the song of our delivery
What defiant beauty in this seizing
Of lost chances & last hopes
What magnificent artifice
In our evasion of oblivion

II


We never know

Where we came from

Nor where we shall go


Sent in a body


We never chose


But then make our own


Like a house inherited

Built of moments and

And others' dreams

Or as a treasure found

Under an upturned stone

III


In the ring of mourners singing
In the voices that spiral upward
Like smoke into the gaping ears of heaven
In the eye of a small flame glistening
There is a prayer signalling silence
That outstares our long-starred fates



Our


Our world is just a window in a jet plane

bound for heaven

maybe

Our day is a porthole on the ferry

crossing the Styx

repeatedly

Our true friends weave the spiders web

to catch our egos in search of self-love

luckily

Our lovers become the shadows

cast by ourselves onto them

irritatingly

Our life is a blip on the radar

of the navigator God

hopefully






Haiku for Eleanor’s Soul

A leaf spins through the sun

Lands on the water

Slowly turns then flows away
