On My Own Mortality

winter_night-wallpaper-800x600Death holds me
In its sway
As sure as ever
It holds kings
And CEOs and
Other famous folk

Death has no
Favorites
There are no
Golden boys
Or girls
It’s proven fact

And I have
Learned
To live
With that
Most of
The time

But please
Come not
For me today
It is so lovely
Take me on
A cloudy day

Or when the
Rain pours down
Or maybe
It could wait
Till spring
Or even summer

Still I would
Not want
To die in
Autumn
When the fire
Is on the trees

It must be in
The winter then
If it must be
Or maybe
We could strike
A deal

Perhaps I’m
Not quite
So blasé
About it all
As I had
Thought

I'm either a transplanted East Coaster or a born again West Coaster. My heart kept pulling me toward Oregon, and when I followed it I found my dream, which I am living daily. My dream of becoming a writer has come true as well. I am in the company of people who speak my language, and the sense of community is healing hurts I didn't know were there. I am very grateful for my enormous good fortune.

  2. Your entreaty mirrors what I, too, have felt and considered a bargaining point with The Universe.

    • If only. I’ve always wondered if I’ll be as brave as I think I am. It’s a pretty big step, after all, in more ways than one! 🙂

  3. It is intriguing that there is this common meditation we have had. Here is my most recent post https://icare2be.wordpress.com/2015/03/20/journeys-end/
