THE CLOCK OF MORTALITY

On the clock of mortality

 

It was around this time

His dreams

Always vivid 

Oh so real

Since he lost

His very being

Now wholly consumed him

There was no longer

A borderline

Separating

Delusion from actuality

 

Not long now

Not long

    1. Cheers. In some respects I am grateful that toward/at the end my old man was unaware of those shuddering ticks. Against that it is maybe better to be aware than be a soul lost, not by design; simply a brain that needed re-wiring.

  1. There is
    no hiding
    or hushing death
    Inhale it,
    embrace it
    Create a full circle
    of life and ultimate destiny
    Clock strikes twelve
    Ready to delve
    in secrets

    1. Sir – even by way of a comment your eloquence is both profound and worthwhile (sorry I’m typing on a tablet I may throw at the wall shortly – bad back and all that). Regardless, thank you. You run a blog mix of photography and poetry that is sublime!

      1. Many thanks for your wonderful words Sir, your words were wonderful and the only way I could comment was my feeble try to extend the conversation. Have a wonderful week 🙂

    1. Difficult thing when one’s dad is snuffing it. I must say blogging does give the forum – fuck this tablet thing I’m typing on – the opportunity to get things out that would otherwise lurk in the dark places of the mind!

      1. Indeed blogging brings up memories and issues of decades ago. I agree it must have been very difficult.

  2. I had to read this a couple of times to fully appreciate it but this was brilliant Mike, well done.

    And you’re right, blogging does help to express one’s thoughts clearly…
