Musing on the nature of life and its loss...
** Image ID #2214112 Unavailable **

Hazy, indistinct, yet earthy
aroma of pastel leaves
accompanies gently winding road,
pathway to original garden.

Dark limbs curve inward,
seeking touch of traveler's temple
as she strides thoughtfully,
awestruck, wondering.

Ethereal, ultraviolet waves
bathe her lightness in glow,
iridescent truth of imperfect soul
laid bare to all.

Nature, both human and soil,
juxtaposes journey and destination,
fluttery, staccato chirping,
heavenly wings nigh.

Effervescent summer breeze
caresses wrinkled skin.
Wanderer's final day,
tasting nirvana with parched lips,
its echo here
all along.
