Unknowing

 

LIFE IS DEATH

 

The tomb

The lifeless pit

It

Cannot constrain

Cannot contain

Life

 

The Womb

 

The fragile sprout

Without a thought

Turns face to bosom

Gazes into the face of

Radiant light

 

Like verses the seasons

Pass

 

Refrain and Chorus

 

The Trees

Sing songs of Joy

Arms lifted in praise

Inexorably

Towards the

Son

 

The old men

In gestures of love

Rustle lips

In a soothing lullaby

Swaying gently to the soft

Summer breeze

 

In silence

The applause

 

There is no fear

of the coming storm

No fear of

Death

 

The fall

The cycle complete.

The lifeless corpse

The womb

The Tomb

 

DEATH IS LIFE

 

A reflection following the story of Adam and Eve and the advent of Death.
