For M

May death
come on cat feet
so stealing and soft
that you're dead
before you know
you're dying.

The condensation of a lot of wishes--certainly one of mine for all I love. One of my friends told me his grandfather died of a sudden heart attack one day, out working in his garden. Perfect.

Mary said...

This would be the ideal way to go for sure, MZ. We can all hope......

Heaven said...

We can only hope so MZ ~

Audrey Howitt aka Divalounger said...

Let's hope it happens that way!

Fireblossom said...

I love Hedge's comment and totally agree.

Robert Bourne said...

a good wish stated nicely in a few words...

Sylvia K said...

Oh, yes! May we all go that way indeed! Great one for the day, MZ, as always!

Sioux said...

That would be a dream come true. If only we could choose our own death...

Sherry Blue Sky said...

The best way to go!

Brian Miller said...

rudyan said...

that would be perfect!

Susan said...

What a fine combination of Ezra Pound, an Irish Blessing and you--blended with much passion! It would be my hope.

Vandana Sharma said...

That would be a very peaceful death and nice one too.

NataĊĦa Dolenc said...

yeah, i agree. would be perfect way to go.

Lorraine said...

Sometimes that happens with violent deaths like running and being hit by a car and your spirits keeps on running I'd love to be hit while i take a photo and somehow walk into heaven taking a photo and my camera falling down back to earth with a photo of heaven...that's my biggest and most unrealistic dream...love what you wrote

Kerry O'Connor said...

Amen! One might wish for many an easy death in the place of suffering.

Leslie said...

death isn't timid but it can be silent
I cant agree more - death would be less feared

grapeling said...

you've thrummed a resonant chord here, MZ

manicddaily said...

This is just wonderful. I am thinking of the wonderful Sandberg, and the resonance is so great also when one thinks of Fog. This is just terrific, MZ. k.
