Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

Death!

In response to V.J’s weekly challenge #55 : Reclaim

Death Valley, Landscape, Bush, Broom, Raven, Desert

Life’s reverie, jolted by the distinct knock,

unprepared for the final destination,

the mind afraid to fathom the moment,

the body pleads to reclaim life from death,

looking back, at the journey traversed,

seemingly obscured behind a shroud of

delusional mirage of success,

realization dawns,

as the soul knows,

it’s time for the final curtains to be drawn,

before the mortal spirit merges with earth!

    between the mortal spirit and the immortal soul, what do we choose to listen to? somehow it sounds wrong even as a question..but Radhika has all the answers 🙂

      I wish I had all the answers ESP, there is so much to unlearn and learn that a lifetime is just not enough I guess!

        great reply and given that statement, answering a question is usually a commitment, making a choice that we can never be sure of, not in one lifetime.

    The only truth which gives us directions whenever in life we go wrong reminding us that no matter what in the end we all have to quit. Wisely expressed Radhika 👍
