To Life!


They say that as soon
as you get that you are a dream,
a Maya,
you will be thankful to disappear
from life itself.
So the Masters say.

I've got some words I still want to write.
I need the world to see me
a moment more.

I fear losing this form
disappearing into the cosmos,
no edges, I am you, you are me.

So I screech to a stop
because I'm just not sure
that infinity is as much fun
as being here.

Most of the time
I like that the play's the thing.
I may want to romance life
once again.
Bouquets of pink roses,
more, please!
Am I forgetting that they come with thorns?

And mother's milk,
for all the sweetness I missed
the last time I cried.

I'm almost dust now.
I don't know.
Do I want quantum, cosmic dancing
just yet?

There's been much discussion on this topic, since the passing of my mother in law in March. I don't want to embrace the cosmic dancing just yet.

Hi Willow-
Thanks..I'm so with you...and loss itself does make us concentrate..

Unknown said...

Certainly not, Lyn! We want to keep reading what you want to keep writing.

JStar said...

This is so powerful Lyn! Live in the moment and enjoy the breeze on your you dance...until you are no longer to dance...

Helen said...

Your post touched a place deep inside me .... Three years ago today my mother passed away as in my arms. It was a gentle, peaceful and lovely passing. I had cared for her during the last five years of her life .... I miss her horribly but I'm not quite ready to join her. Thank you for writing this .....

Lyn said...

Hi Derrick-
What a nice thing to say! Thank you...I'm writing as fast as I can!

Lyn said...

Hi JStar- me dancing is the epitome of living, as you see!!

Lyn said...

Hi Helen-
I totally feel what you've gone through..and may today be a day of beautiful memories...I too lost my Mom 2 years ago..and not a day goes by that I don't speak to her..she is always with me...

Blue Sky Dreaming said...

Okay, agreed, let's all just stay here for awhile longer...write, paint, cook and dance just for now. I was in the care of hospice 2 years ago and changed my mind...lucky me. Your words sing to my heart a thousand ways!

Lyn said...

Hi Mary Ann-
You named my 4 favorite things! Thanks...Thank goodness you turned too, 17 years ago! Let's stay!!

Sheri said...

this was so beautiful, and a valid question you were asking! i long for my eternity to begin but i equally love this delicate dance, even if i've found myself being a wall flower most of the time :) such a lovely post, thank you for sharing it with us :)

Lyn said...

Hi sheri-
Thanks for your thoughts..and being a wallflower isn't so bad..we get to observe an awful lot!!

Do I stil want a last chance at the ball? You bet I do and infinity can wait. :-)

Greetings from London.

Lyn said...

Greetings to a Cuban- too... the last dance, very far away!!

Lyn: I love your poetry! So reminds me of ee cummings, one of my faves.

I know I will someday return to the ashes from whence I came, but for now I'd like to relish in the living, while I still can...

Lyn said...

Hi Snooty Primadona-
ee cummings? Really? I'll take it..thanks for you kind words...

Lyn said...
