Immortality

Threads of thought uncoiling
Swirls of memories gathering
Like so many beads.
Shades flickering
Sounds disentangling

The glint of an eye
Searching.
The swish of wings
Of a bird in flight
Wandering.
The touch of a feather
Floating in the air and
Gently settling down on earth
Surrendering.

Like a drop of water that clings
On the end of a leaf
Glistening.
Like curls of smoke
That escape
Straying.
Like clouds that glide
On air
Drifting.

Mingling, fusing, merging
One by one
They will all be gone
And reborn
Returning.

Mahogany hues and emerald foliage
Born of the earth
Rising.
Into the starry canvases overhead
Infinitely stretching.
Driving down
Down
Into an endless spiral
Only to rise above again.

  1. Beautiful. I read it a couple of times, so as to grasp the meaning, and I’m glad I did.

  2. Yeah, the meaning is kinda indirect…

    Thanks for the kind words ;]

  3. This is great!
    Now whenever I’ll hear the sound of the waves I’ll remember your poem (-;

  4. Thanks! That was one of the nicest compliments anyone ever paid me! :]
