“The Leaving” – Poetry

Related image

Enfolded by branches strong

Emerald gown cradles my head

Whispers speak and singing chants

Surround me.

Saved from tumultuous seas

Deafening blasts and agonizing screams

Healing silence, the gentle profound

Surround me.

Secret heaven of kindness and freedom

Suspended within an atmosphere of wine

And friends of my spirit in many forms

Surround me.

Waking from a restful slumber

To gaze below at my shedding form

Entangled in the creeping vines

Surround me.

Reclining on a carpeted swing

Family of ages past and future

Vision turned to new adventures

Surround me.
