A One -Time Flight

Angel’s wings
In death carry me
As eyes dim
No one sees
The soul that lives is set free
Put joy in your tears

And if I
By some grace bestowed
Can offer
Sweet solace
I shall send my tears to you
Of laughter and mirth

A task done
Is worth the journey
Going home
Is pleasant
And we will gather again
When wings help you fly


dVerse prompt today is a Shadorma. A 6 line stanza of the meter 3-5-3-3-7-5. Amaya wants a poem of any amount of stanzas examining the fog,  paranormal,  or unexplained phenomena of life and death.   There is definitely some phenomena going on in death and much we only can speculate.  I hope I did the prompt justice.

  1. It’s a fine shadorma, Mary! I like the thought that we may have wings to fly.

  2. Certainly, Mary, there is a great deal of mystery in that ‘one-time flight.’ I like the repetition of joyful tears, as those in themselves are unexplained and seem to be from a higher realm.

    I like these two lines: “I shall send my tears to you
    Of laughter and mirth”

    Encouraging words showing death as journey…rather than a destination.

    Yes, this. Not all tears are sad ones. Beautifully penned.

  9. I so wonder if there is anything beyond… but I can accept the beauty of the road without knowing the end too.
