Death comes with flowers and trees

Death comes with flowers and trees
Death comes with the whole sky and every sea
Death comes with grasshoppers in your hair
Death comes with rabbits in your nose

Death comes with song thrushes on your breast
Death comes with cats between your legs
Death comes with rivers beneath your back
Death comes with stars in your stomach

Death is a knob of butter in eternity
Death is a stone in a meadow
Death is a falling maple leaf
Death is a passing shadow

Do not fear death we are told
Death comes and goes
Instead, fear the Creator of life
And trust in all He knows

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
