8. Eternal Friendship

The two great friends Birth and Death
Conspired for humans, Lament and Breath;

The natal twinge the infant could never express
The soul’s departure nor the body could digress;

A rare MIRACLE, a life in life
Grows up to experience the worldly strife;

A child takes no time to mature fast
An adult leaves the post for he cannot last;

The wrinkles force to quit for Gen next
Their epochs are quoted in various texts;

Exit and Entrance prudently divine
Folded in mystery the unseen time.

    This is a great writing. I wish I could understand it better, so I could give it a ten instead of a nine.

    Awesome! Your poem moves with Miltonic dignity. I liked the opening lines:

    'The two great friends Birth and Death
    Conspired for humans, Lament and Breath.'

    You are a already a great and recognized poet. While commenting on your poems I feel small as if I am showing lamp to the Sun.

    Plenty of self-realization to this writing that really sets the table for a discussion of enlightenment and death. But here’s the thing: vision-quests, thousands of hours of meditation, the delicate finesse that make euphemisms appealing and wanting in grace, is in its essence, empirically a matter of individual conciousness. You have to credit the rich diversification of Abha's words though, for a well-lit fundamental distinction about the point of life.

    This piece, no doubt, in this Reader's mind, could be a school-text paradigm as to when couplet stanzaec structure is aproppriate & enhancing to its body of work.
    Death is Renaissance di excelscior....as it represents the nascence of a new, but ever-life....as opposed to our microcosmed time spent toiling in mortal life.
    ''ETERNAL FRIENDSHIP ', sheds positive light on the spirituality of Death....as there is nothing bella-grande, about th' inevitible process of aging: mentally, physically or aesthetically.This is fine work, as always, young lady....You are truly
    a gifted scribe.

    well written.
    Death is as necessary for a man's growth as life itself.
