In Death, There's Beauty

Where ancient waves dried to give land, Eyes swim in seas of sparkling sand; Through forests robbed of verdant glow, Trees blaze with autumn’s red and gold; From the icy deep lava climbs a mile, To sleep above and birth a virgin isle; In farthest space a lone star decays, Detonates in bursts of diamond rays; But there's nothing that so takes our breath, Than the rich sun in its daily death.

Very impressive, Bernard, you pulled back the veil of cosmic cycles to show there is life after death. Have a great day.

You expressed well a reality we must face with sobriety ( I believe we can by the grace of God). Thanks for sharing your talent. God bless you.
