Sepulcher

by Shawnee

Age Group: Adult



Sepulcher~

A stone epitaph, weather worn and made illegible by time
Stands as a solitary sentinel at the edge of history
In lonely solemn reverence to what lies beneath
The interred's deeds and misdeeds judged long ago
And forgotten
Forgotten...

Do the dead envy the steady rise and fall of our fragile breast
Or pity us our ill conceived fate
Knowing we too shall pull back the veil and become forgotten amongst the stars

Do they stand upon the great divide of life and death stretching desperate hands towards those that remember their face
Or take flight with the night birds to see what gives life to the darkness
Each on an arcane pilgrimage to expand a limitless consciousness

Do they hover at our bedside longing to lift our mundane lids to their existence
Or hide amongst the Yew trees, waiting to be found by the wanderer
Giving transcendent sound to the wind with their beckoning song

Do they awake with the moon to insinuate themselves into our ephemeral and vulnerable dreams
Or is it we that invite them with our unconscious mournful yearning
A chance, a selfish request to behold their presence for a mere moment
And remember
Remember...

Shawnee Kircher ~ November 9, 2012




Author's Notes: This particular poem came to me as I was falling asleep...something prodding me to jot down the 2nd verse. As soon as my eyes opened the next morning, the rest just flowed. This was one of the quickest poems I've ever written, and I think it's because I got a gentle nudge from the other side...
