Why are you not writing these days? I looked for your latest; couldn't find any. So, I chose this which has got the maximum number of hits. Needless for me to repeat that this a very beautiful and profound poem. The imagery is great and that feather-like fall out of mortal restrictions is superb.
Interestin read. I liked the poem, overall
but the title of the poem just feel so wrong.
I read the poem, and smiled...for you had a successful death. You reached to the destination where you were supposed to be.
It's the completion of a mission.
Just using 'humorous death' do not appeal to me.
This is one of the most touching visions of one's dying that I've read. My father used to talk about his ancestors a lot, how considerate they had been in preparing the way for us in life. (It was the closest he could come to images like yours) .
