Death stands by his closet dressing.
He checks his date book. Twice.

    It is well written and light in comparison to its topic—perhaps this is the other reason why I like it; thank you!

    Martha-Death is to us how we live and relate to death-fine imagery, I especially liked the 'wedding white' which resonsates in so well with 'ones so weary'.
    Your contemplative nature shines through your work. Phillip
