Death Lied

When the ghosts entered the light,
they held utterly still,
nothing in sight,
no movement,
as if they were waiting for God’s breath,
after death,
waiting for God to shine,
waiting for some kind of sign,
something divine,
nothing moved,
even the breeze seemed to have died,
death lied.

    This poem is how true romanticism is defined ... it reminds me so fondly of Robert Browning in its metaphysics so persistent in your themes ... praises again and love.

    Frightening thought, brilliantly written. Very compelling, Frank.
