MAGPIE...Prompt #192

                           RESURRECTION REUNION 2 / 1945/ Sir Stanley Spencer

THANK YOU, Tess...Magpie Tales


They say we look alike,
it's the pallor of our cheeks,
the breath we gasp,
when we enter
what is this place?

Is it meditation, sleep,
death, exit,

Which chakra are we jammed at?
I'm heading for the crown,

stop pining away at Plexus.

My lips already flash
a spank of tangerine,
yours, no question
need a lick of color.

How are we alike?

I often wonder which of Dantes circles i will end up in .......reminds me of Borimir in LOTR when he is unable to look upon Lady Galadriel, unable to meet her gaze ......i wonder....
