Enough Endings - Poem by Zywa Zywa

I make up enough endings
in my mind, knowing
that life continues
with little metabolism
of what ceases to exist
but it is difficult

to take it lightly
when you feel it happen
My heart does want to breathe
wisdom, but it needs blood
to feel the warmth of love
flowing in me, in and out

receiving and giving
around the earth, gathering
in the sea, the salmon swim
up and down, it snows and rains
the hazel is in bloom
and will give a basket full of nuts

Topic(s) of this poem: temporary life

Poet's Notes about The Poem

"The End" (1969, Paul McCartney)

Celtic symbolism: Coll (the Hazel) , whose nuts contain magic power and wisdom; the Hazel should be guided by Manannan Mac Lir (the sea god, a master of disguise)and the Salmon (the oldest and wisest animal, the symbol of inspiration and creativity)
