Until One Day It Was Gone

Until One Day It Was Gone

In the tree of
My life
On view
I write for you
This eu-lo-gy,
Not for me
Of course,
But instead
For the horse
I rode in on.
Too many
Months now
He rode, and wow
What a job
Did he!
No longer needed
His life force
Ebbed; receded,
Until one day
It was gone...

Here is the song that I have been hearing for the last few days  where did you sleep last night as played by Nirvana in their last live performance Nirvana Unplugged in New York

"For the horse I rode in on"....yes we should all write a eulogy for him....we certainly all have one metaphorically this Chris!

Chris - hey good to read you again. Loving the short lines and rhymes in this. Sad to think this is what happens when we're no longer needed.

Hi Chris, you linked this up with Real Toads for Susie McMahon's arts? But I don't see the imagery of her work but the one from The Mag ~ Please let me know if you have linked by error ~ If you did, I will remove the link ~

Thanks & have a good week ~ Grace

Oh I see, the tree of life & the horse who carried us through it all ~ I think we take for granted what sustains us until the energy is fully depleted ~ I appreciate your participation Chris ~

No worries, I will keep your link ~

Wishing you Happy Week ~ Hope you are well ~ Grace

I like the notion of life being a tree...
