Theme: Death

No, Not Now


No, don't come near 
not now. 
I feel your presence 
among shadows 
of dormant souls 
over opals and roses. 
Can hear crickets' songs
void of rhythms 
floating lost 
on leafless trees. 
Oceans disappear 
abandoning thirsty sands. 
Silent planets 
eternally dancing 
are so close now. 
Deep darkness of the night 
overwhelms me. 
Dawn arrives 
kissing my lips, 
blanket of warm sun 
covers this painful body, 
giving it life. 
Another hour, another day.

Comment As I believe,You have run away the shadow of darkness by strong desire of living because you are a brave & courageous lady of strong determination.Dawn has arrived
at your door with hope and its golden rays. The Sun has brought a warm blanket of love for you.It is all due to blessing of God, as you have complete
faith in Him.Don't allow the thoughts of despair.All will be well.Always smile
and do yoga in the morning & evening both.Take medicines and juice of growing wheat regularly. It will help to make new blood in your body.Be positive, as you have to do many work of Him.God always bless you,dear smart young lady.Heartiest thanks for above nice writing.Thank you very much.

Comment "Another hour, another day".... a great way to express one's thanksgiving and gratitude for the warmth and light of the harbinger of life ... the cause, the origin and eventually where dissolution goes to take rest.
