to live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong


heads bowed
huddled together
the only sound
is a sad,
crooning bagpipe
atop a mountain
the wind whispers
through the trees
making them bend
and sway
the wind comforts me,
it remind me of you
a gentle hand on my cheek,
but it slowly fades
as i see you sink
into the strong earth
i accept the rose
they give
after it rested atop your bed
i take a walk to clear my head
nothing but memories
and a dirt road
i walk back to town
your home, your air, almost tangible
and i can only thank God
you are safer than me.

Very well done. Death is the source of tragedy, and yet it is also a gift.
