MAGPIE...Prompt #183

                                            PASSING PLACE/ Steven Kelly

THANK YOU, Tess, at Magpie Tales...


Ready for cloud nine,

instead, barren arid landscape,
not the wrap up I'm expecting.

I'm floating
like a half-formed banshee,
asking veiled spirits
if this is Paradise?

Not a seraph in sight
to bundle me across
the path of good intentions.

Where's the tunnel of light,
or my spirit guide
swanning in the mist,
waiting to take my hand?

I expected
at the very least,
a beckoning angel,
face of a Gothic saint.

Maybe a chorus line
meandering up
the stairway to heaven.

Really disappointed.

Is this all there is ?
Many believe that the fabled tunnel with the light at the end is simply our life played in reverse at the point of physical death, so in due course we are once again coming out the uterus into the brightly lit hospital....
Some spiritual paths promote thinking the day in reverse as tou pass to sleep at night, to learn and become better at this process...
Fascinating eh ?

Lyn said...
