The Codicil

A laden coffin bloomed for me & I knew total peace.

So, I want it written my wishes for when I finally am deceased.

Bury me in linen wrappings no box or basket will suit better than Earth for me.

If you burn me, muddy me up in a drip-castle to be washed away by the sea.

Once you’ve planted me in family ground give me a gravestone and a seat.

Let it etch the usual details but end it with “I am listening…have a seat.”

Bring blooming bulbs for my rectangle & plant one for each time you see me.

Bulbs with blooms for all seasons will naturally light the way for me.

I see the world through a Painter’s eyes and process it with a Poet's's quite a harsh place for the soul. It scratches and wears your true self down, at times, but the Beauty is Addictive. I feel for everyone I encounter. Everyone I encounter is a teacher if I'll let them be. I Empathize with everyone I talk to & I Think about Everything-LEVi
