the song of passing

tell them when I die

that I did not die

tell them I’m painting landscapes from the sky

tell them I found love in a grain of sand

and followed it there

tell them I’m hiding in the woven basket on the floor

tell them my heart stopped beating

because the chase was over

tell them my body fell away

like soiled clothes before a shower

tell them I’m blue and purple and gold

tell them I’ll never grow old

tell them I now skip from planets

and smile in starlight

tell them the sun is my eye

tell them not to worry or fear

that I’m near

tell them when they die

that they will not die

Also appears in:

slightly irregular

Thank you for posting this, Tony. I love it! The poem; the image. Touched me deeply. I needed that this morning. Thank you. Namaste.
