A Book About Death
A Book About Death
8" x 10"

An invitation to feast
on other incarnations,
The recollection of past lives
resurrected from the void.

Fleeting moments
arc, dive, swoop,
scatter and reassemble
Sharing secrets, stories, names

What is yours?

Shadows in the mirror,
shades of all hue
The messenger is in the offing

The moment forms
The wave is breaking—

Brilliant darkness, silent roar.

In the inner chamber a clear light shines.
Dream on, and you miss it.

Piercing radiance
to take root at the core.
