rumination

oh life what matters in the end
ol' Sol rises, arcs over, descends
all hate and love are but a blink
in larger schemes of time a wink

time approaches an ending encroaches
a dark full view, whole moon turns new
and shadows disappear in the night
no form of light to reference to

that all souls walk into twilight
after a lifelong experienced time
wiser became from sweet afflictions
taken for truth well past the prime

in crisp clear corners of my eyes
i see the autumn of our lives
what happened last repeats repast
in wake of death, past last breath

oh, lay my bones on plains unknown
bleach them out to shades of cream
let them dry as life goes by
my spirit may wander a soulful dream

Wow. I think the ruminations of souls that accept the inevitability of mortality is probably universal; thoughts that simply cannot be held at bay. And fine ruminations they are in this poem, GG2H. Another very fine piece of work with a very rich sense of humanity throughout. wine

"time approaches and ending encroaches ..." - leaves me wondering whether this is a start of the end of the life we lead. And the picture of death is astonishing - what with "no form of light" and "all souls walking into twilight". The more you read, the more you imagine the picture. I often catch myself thinking about it.

Hello GGTH!

That's one soul arising, beautiful to see!
Your spectres of your writes are flicking in the sunlight

Gives one more reason for a love of poetry, from a masterfull hand
