Passing on

Posted to Poetry




Seagulls
Soon retire
To perch on poles

Across
The
Sea

And
Soon after
Their shadows turns penumbral and then
Theoretical (The way.)

They float
Uh----
Way

And death is synchronized
Chronologically
With departure

Those who leave
Soon will
Perish

A butterfly develops
A caterpillar dies
When people talk of victory
Don’t believe their lies
