    Silent sword withdraws
    Blood patters like children's steps
    Memories like rain

    I spoke my first death poem out loud to my friend tonight and it was the first time I had done so.
    Pretty intense.

    May I play also?

    A little twist on the death motif:


    Sheathed within bleached bone
    an ancient immortal waits
    for the alchemist

    This is very personal to me. A few years ago, a person very close to me died suddenly of cancer. We didn't even know it existed until about two months before she passed. These were a few word I wrote as a memory and to gain some personal perspective on the situation:


    Travel on,
    Traveller, traveling.
