    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. (Report) Reply

    A marvelous poem, but I think humorous is the wrong word to use in the title. Better would be pleasant or pleasing or joyful, etc.
    I scored it a ten. (Report) Reply

    My ancestors are laughing now.
    Applauding joyfully,
    glad that I am released
    from the restrictions of being.
    An amazing death. enjoyed it. (Report) Reply

    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. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful poem reflecting what we all will experience one day.
    I've wrote before saying Sally is my favourite poet on this site and with poems like this I bet I'm not on my own either! (Report) Reply

    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) . (Report) Reply

    Some face the future
    With happy repose
    Hoping they can nurture
    One last round as life goes.

    And as they slide through 'death's door'
    They smile and say,
    'Wish I could've done more,
    It was a hell of a ride, now I've got hell to pay! ' (Report) Reply

    life makes to objure deeds to words truthfully,
    My past passes me,
    It is a long way,
    the bottom.
    In the mortuary of mind
    lay my ancestors (Report) Reply
