Let Me Fall Under Some Natural Disaster Poem by Mark Heathcote

Let Me Fall Under Some Natural Disaster

Rating: 4.3


Let me fall under some natural-disaster
the eye of a storm picks up the hereafter.

Be felled as if by a random act of god,
let my ashes be sprinkled over the sod.

Be mingled with the waters-ever-present
in the driest desert, moister is-permeated,

it intersperses with the sands and the stars
camels - entering riders' their own bazaars.

Their midnight dreams, restless perspiring limbs,
all are in his death throes, sing-know many hymns.

Some killed by an avalanche, some drown at sea
some pandemics take but please, please God, not me.

Beautifully written. The last lines add the most fun. Though we all dream of our last days and have wishes on how to die none wants to die with this virus! Also want to thank you for your recent comment on my new poem Crossing The Bridge.

Thank you, Valsa for your comments the contradiction is a purposeful personal frustration relating singular to the virus.
