We could do worse than bequeath to beloved Earth our carbon. I intend to. Almost all the human body is made up of six elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus. Carbon, among the elements that don't float away, are necessary for future life-forms. We are all dust from the same flower.
I intend to, as well. And I love your last statement. :)
Being part of a lilac would be an honor. :)
Wouldn't it? I agree. Wholeheartedly. :)
O Teresa, you have no idea how close to my heart ( and reality) that is.
It's so wonderful to hear from you! Thank you for reading and commenting. I thought you had stopped blogging but I see I was wrong, so I shall be by to visit soon. I've always found your honesty so refreshing.
I am feeling a sense of powerful nostalgia here and I don’t know why. But, as part of this vast network called existence each of us are interconnected in time, though we may not fully aware of that. As I read this poem again and again, I feel an unknown silence reigning upon me and it gives rise to a blissful feeling within me. I love this oneness with nature and time expressed in your works. Lovely.
I'm so grateful you take the time to leave such thoughtful comments. They mean a lot to me. Thank you.
