Eulogy for a common man

01 Apr

The Soul of Maurice J.

 It was three days

And three nights

Before he could rise again.

 

Death invites itself

Long before we receive

Its invitation.

 

The Soul with grace

And poise

Accepts the moment.

 

Who then is preoccupied

With judgement

Of this one;

 

Of this mist

That is dried by the sun

And returns as the pond?

 

The passage

Is insignificant

If balance has been achieved.

 

Only the witnesses

Are important

As another soul is freed.

    I love the clarity of the language, and the mist image.

    Very true.” The passage is insignificant, if balance has been achieved.”
    Free from all desires and merging our soul in to the universe.
    Beautiful creation, with deep meaning.
