Watch This Space

After Life and Death

Watch This Space 

Life is an interruption
an uncalled for shock

as unexpected as green sky
out of nowhere, an aberration

an explosion in a sea of darkness
diminishing like a firework.

Death is forever patient
always content to play that waiting game

you could say the ultimate backdrop
increasing prominence with age

and when the glass is emptied of the last grain
returns the equilibrium of eternity.

Afterwards, thank God,
we can all breathe a sigh of relief –

and get back to what we were really doing!

... but in the mean time, and coming back to Earth, I might just have time to place the occassional post.
