Death , Succinctly

Ripples of Fear
Course down my Cat’s body
Does she foresee my Death ?

Your Death
Could not stop me loving you
Perhaps my Death will

It’s final . Really .
No coming back , even of
a breath. Death .

Death is not
Proud or Humble : It is
Essential

Death , individual
Causes ripples in the sea
Of Life , universal

Inevitable
As Death ; Ephemeral
As Life : Reality

When this Life
Meets Life Eternal : Death ,
Thou shalt Die

( Amita Sarjit Ahluwalia )

    Evocative,allusive,and insightful ruminations on death,culminating in the Metaphysical poet Donne’s paradoxical statement.A delightful read.
