Dying place

"Dying place" poetry by Roshan James, Kitchener Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

Text:

I’ll see you in the dying place

Amid the shattered stone

Where grass and trees

Grow no more

Where silence makes a home

 

This place we find

As sun meets earth

Is less bleak than it appears

What you see is mortal-view

There’s more beyond the veil

 

We’ll keep this place

A little warmed

Though frost hangs from our breath

Our conversation seeds the ground

For life to follow death

  1. Hi, I just posted about after death! My blog is https://t0bec0nsidered.wordpress.com/ if you would like to take a look! This is a great post by the way!

    • Thanks for your comment, and thanks for sharing what you wrote! I’ll check out your post, too! As a note, the thinking behind this piece is that it’s not literally about death, but it’s a metaphor for endings in general and the “life” that follows 🙂

  2. How uplifting! Well done, and thanks to Theodore for his input. I love it and would like to see it illustrated as well some day!

    • Thank you, Julie 🙂 Illustrating this is a cool idea. The kids and I have been drawing and painting quite a bit lately so this would work well as inspiration for a new project 🙂
