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.

A wonderful poem well written. A one of a kind thought on death. Death has its own course. It may come like a thief in the night in a way that we cannot foresee.
