In the last sigh
No sonic boom

Echoes of Ghosts,
lessons unlearned the hard way

Lives shed over and over
Peeling off the old for raw change

Regret? Not really, or perhaps a cooling ember
Buried deep no longer a burning inferno

Final wish?
I would ask for knowledge’s Kiss, no more

Words? Life is full of recycled syllables
Let me see your face again

In the last sigh

Imaginary Garden With Real Toads


For my final poem for NaPoWriMo, I joined with imaginary garden with real toads:

A few minutes from now, you will lose all means of communication with humanity.  You will not die, but will no longer be able to interact with the world.  Whats the last thing you say?

  2. Beautiful! For most of my life my great dream was that, if only in my last moment, I would gain knowledge (and understanding) of it ALL. But I came to the conclusion that is neither possible nor important after all. Your ending here is perfect!

  3. Life is full of recycled syllables, indeed–the sincerity here is warm and real, the sense of yearning light, delicate, but the secret to the whole flavor. Or so I read. No better message to send at the end of the world, as far as I’m concerned.
