Death of an Aquaintance, Daily 19

19: Weary faces look over  the unwritten memoirs.
The death of an acquaintance quakes little tremors.
Legs caramel and long extend off the tattered couch,
Under the old blanket that covers her just that much.
Embroidered flower swirls hide the silent ancient song.
We are powerless when death’s musician hits the gong.

    Like the opening bells to Witch's Sabbath in Berlioz's Fantastic Symphony. The dies irae, eh? Congrats on the selection. daver

    There is another side we haven't seen. I sometimes wonder. Are we powerless or becoming empowered. Vince
