A Dark Fire

Say we can meet
in the astral place,
then I can travel
deaths dark corridoor
with some dignity
and grace.
If your bright light shines
fore or aft,
I'll know I'm safe in spirit
and night will pass
into beams of brightness.

And yours will be
the might I see
when I wander eternity.
Then if your own
sweet chariot should pass me
with its wheels of flame,
I shall be warmed,
and then I'll live again.

    Sally this is a very beautiful and tender expression. Reading it makes me feel warm. I wanted to say, it makes me want to hug you. There... I've said it.

    To travel death's dark corridor with dignity and grace is a striking oxymoron. I have a passion for works that go beyond the physical.

    I will forever ride the astral plane. A great write.

    Seeing the title 'A Dark Fire, ' I immediately thought of Nabokov's 'Pale Fire, ' a title derived from Shakespeare. Wondering if there might be any coincidental smilarities, I noticed there were. Did you ever read that novel?
