A Dark Fire

Rating: 5.0

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.

When I clicked on this poem I was very curious about the role DARK FIRE would take. And I was surprised and heartened by the subtle arrival of the chariot with the understated presence of divine power and/or love.Earlier this summer I read again D. H. Lawrence's SHIP OF DEATH, which he wrote to prepare for his own death. Very existential. Your poem joins a noble company.

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.

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?
