Among The Trees Lay My Ashes All About

Among The Trees Lay My Ashes All About

Among the trees lay my ashes all about
once I was free, so let my spirit shout
All life works out in its own sweet time
even its mysteries are puzzles sublime

Say nice words as my ashes hit the breeze
careful not to inhale or me you'll sneeze
As my remains meet the fertile ground
There I be in spirit looking all around

Wind and rain Nature's elements play
part of me will sprout some Spring day
Yes, ashes to ashes , dust to dust
I lived a good life, that you can trust

As pretty flowers grow under the trees
I'll be in another realm sailing calm seas
Or aboard a starship galaxies far away
Anything is possible or so people say

Among the trees lay my ashes all about
once I was free, so let my spirit shout
All life works out in its own sweet time
even its mysteries are puzzles sublime

Note --I've been busy today. My muse forced me 
to write five poems.
I favor this one and the last one of the five.
Flipped a coin to decide which to post first,
this one won...

Robert, I love this deep and emotional poem, so beautifully written 7, I have days like that also when my muse is on fire and it is best to just go with it because there are days when the muse is asleep and thanks for visiting my poem, The makeover . . . still weeping
