Following DEATH

August 13, 2010 § 2 Comments

Last week, when I was celebrating my friendship with DEATH and pondering Dead Advice, I noticed that a few of the writers I follow hit similar themes. Was it the lurking Friday the 13th? Or the dead heat of summer for some of us? Who knows? But I do want to celebrate them – here are some of my favorites and their death themes:

Zodi’s Corpsey Cat
Joseph’s In Praise of the Smallness of Rooms
Briarcat’s martha’s much needed rest
Lawrence’s found haiku
And because we need Reasons to live, read Neil.

As I revisit these, I’m in awe of the talent found in my tiny blogosphere.

    Thank you for you consideration to include me. Someone else did express concern over my last couple posts, found poems. As I mention – maybe too much – I just had a stent placed this week, so of course thinking about life and death.

    But on the other hand, sometimes artists (if I may include myself among) create the opposite of what they are feeling. Mahler wrote his “Kindertotenleider” during what he said was the happiest time of his life, enjoying a summer in the country with his wife and children. Maybe my despairing choices are a kind of gallows humor, at my relief at having passed through this unscathed.
