Waking

This bitter cup reminds me of what waits

dissolution at the far off edges

where things fall apart

the film ends and fades into the backlight

Then what’s left but a walk into the forest?

Take up company with the demigods

and watch as the universe becomes truth

final and complete and dying

We were already here, dead at birth

and we dreamed for a while

of a world where we weren’t

Then we woke up

  1. Mitch this is sadly beautiful.

    “final and complete and dying

    Very poignant and heart rendering.
    Have a blessed day my friend and be safe on your drive to Denver. Love 💕 Joni
