There aren't cards for the dying

There aren't cards for the dying
The leaves let go now

no epitaph
Not so easy for us

We want the flocked swans
an italic verse

the hallmarked time
so gravely pocketed

Oh Jarvenpa! It's been too long since I've read poetry even close to this. Do you still write, post? I would love to be able to see more of this

Thank you, atma...and the rest of you. Yes, I am still writing, though time for poetry these days is limited by other matters--it is an interrupted life I live, though in good cause.
I am glad some of my poetry has reached your hearts.

Life comes first of course. But there must be room for poetry. At least in the eyes and heart.

I'll keep checking in

It's true that there aren't cards for the dying.
