dVerse Poetics Pub: Follow the Clouds

This is linked to dVerse Poetics. We have been asked to write octets and some have chosen to write about the theme, of the road or travel. Some have written different forms of eight line poetry and different journeys.

Once a wizard from another
Universe told me:  accept your
Death as a given – you will be
Freed from fear of dying, freed from
Fear of living. Pull your sword and
Step forward. Step onto the road
And don’t look back. Follow the clouds
As they race in the sky. Live free.

    One’s who stop worrying about death only die one time…

    For others the death can be constant in life.. as worry is

    no life.. as fear is the progenitor of most all feelings of

    negativity and the strife that make like difficult for those

    who rarely think or feel the present now as reality true..:)

    I love the thought – to be freed from fear, maybe the road will give us the direction,

    It is interesting that we tend to fear death…even though it is an unavoidable part of life.

      I think we are afraid of the unknown, afraid of how we might die. Years ago in a class I was taking, the question was: What do you most fear? Out of 30 pupils, 25 of them answered: Death – afraid of dying by drowning, by fire, auto accident, cancer, alone…I have found even those of us who believe in eternal life through the Grace of Jesus often have some fear there.

    Simple, yet effective and efficient of words. Wonderful, Kanzen.
    Worrying about death won’t change anything. It will come when it comes. You can’t stop it so forget about it and live your life. ❤ ❤ ❤

    Love the message and the tone. I wish I could apply it to myself more easily.
    Excuse the belated visit but I was away from home for three days.
