Radiance of Mortality

perched upon gray branches in leafless trees blackbirds rest on their journey to nowhere an icy red wine sky leaps into our mind

Radiance of Mortality is a poem written by Ken Allan Dronsfield and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme Shining Bright / Deepest Black for the month of November

 

perched upon gray branches in leafless trees blackbirds rest on their journey to nowhere an icy red wine sky leaps into our mind just over the horizon a mysterious radiant mortality looms as it waits church bells toll in the valleys a pain in my head reaches a crescendo the illness rages dirty linen is left here the body quakes and quivers with the fever night brings a moonless horror crickets sing raspy breathing slows body stiffens as the woeful spirit releases death arrives in a radiance of darkness as the sun rises eyes open to a different view of life is death the absolute end or just a new beginning.
