Because We Will Not End
Meet me after awhile
Where the earth meets the sky,
Where flowers rise up to become clouds. . . . . .

Because We Will Not End

Meet me after awhile

Where the earth meets the sky,

Where flowers rise up to become clouds.

Watch for me where the firmament

Melts and evaporates into the heavens,

Where waters flow into the sun. 

I will be there.

Either, before or after you,

I do not know which.

 

But shall we promise

To look for and to find

Each other,

In the morning,

At the start of a new day,

Where the earth meets the sky?

In reference to the subject of life, let us consider a life after this one.  Some people plan to meet their loved ones on the other side of the eastern gate of heaven.  Some make no plans at all.  The protagonist in this posted poem prefers to meet just at the horizon. Happy tea times!   skp
