Journey to the Sea

When death comes to ask forgiveness
May I be ready with a kiss.
Take these trinkets. Take that treasure.
I need nothing more than this.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. I’m going to refrain from using profanity, but you’d better believe it’s pouring out of my lips.

    This is so flippin’ good, Frank; I can hardly contain myself.

    Your short poems are brilliant, my dear. I genuinely want so many of them spread all over my walls.

    Facing the ultimate with such confidence was a soul that had created a path of sincerity and integrity and was warmly regarded in their lifetime. Very true Frank!

    1. I don’t know why it reminded me of death, perhaps the road leading to the water. I noticed when reading yours that you seemed to have a similar idea. It is a nice painting. Thank you, Bekkie!

    1. If it comes too soon that would be reason to ask forgiveness. I thought of that line yesterday when thinking about forgiving someone before it is too late. Thank you, Mary!


    1. It wasn’t intended to be dark, but then it is about death. I was hoping the idea of “forgiveness” softened the darkness somewhat. Thank you, Sarah, for noticing that it wasn’t really dark.
