Final Contribution

A carcass lies upon the ground
On close inspection life is found

From death to life new cells conform

A single lost life, provides a feast
To feed the stong and very least

Nature is nourished no reason to mourn



Thought I was writing a Terzanelle on hope and ended up with a Tail Rhyme instead. 
Being it is my only tail Rhyme I guess it is my favorite.

Favorite Tail Rhyme Contest

    Profound write, Richard. This re-confirms my belief that the world is "One"...everything that's been given life is.. I know that some people do not agree and that's fine...it's only my opinion. Thanks for the visit. Enjoyed reading your poem. Always, Annalise

    Thanks so much Annalise, I do agree even though it can be very sad.

    I am thankful that the Nature Poetess has come to visit. I am in awe of how you capture nature. For me this is but a first awkward step.
