Twin Triplets. No.19


LIFE

Precious and priceless
But gradually weakens and withers
And opens the door to death

DEATH

Dreadful and unpredictable
At once disconnecting and conjoining
And opens the door to life

    'Death eventually opening the door to life! ....... beyond that door what is there to speak of is the concern. A streak of optimism about the ultimate exit and that of pessimism about life are however, powerfully driven home in these twin triplets. A fine write madam. (Report) Reply

    In order for a seed to germinate it has to be planted in
    the earth. The seed dies and opens up to a new life
    of beauty. Passed from death unto life. Very good. (Report) Reply

    The full circle of life drawn so perfectly here!
    'At once disconnecting and conjoining
    And opens the door to life' - A glittering jewel in the crown.
    These two lines kept me thinking for a while, as to how death opens the door to life, albeit life in the eternity.
    Thanks for sharing such diamond pieces.10/10. (Report) Reply

    Life & Death, the twin revolving doors of fate(aka the circle of life?) ! A fascinating write and all together true! You've made such complex topics compact, yet dense with frightening wonder.
