Poeming: Anti-Transient

Today’s prompt over at Robert Lee Brewer’s Poem A Day Challenge is to write an Anti-(blank) poem. Sometimes I like to have fun with parentheses, like today. I judge this poem a bit sappy, but I like it anyway.

 

Anti-Transient

Sprinkle my ash in the wind
(where no pain)
let me float free like a leaf
(touches me)
watch with a smile on your lips
(when I’m gone)
know that I’m finally free

Sprinkle my ash to the waves
(I have loved)
mingling with sand and with stone
(you beyond)
sing with the tune of the sea
(total love)
carry my heart-song in yours

Sprinkle my ash to the trees
(where no pain)
birdsong and light through the leaves
(touches me)
made my heart full now they’re yours
(when I’m gone)
remember me in these things

Sprinkle my ash on the ground
(I have danced)
in the sunlight and in rain
(in bare feet)
turn your face up and embrace
(with pure joy)
all that this life has to give

Sprinkle my ash in the wind
(where no pain)
let me float free like a leaf
(touches me)
watch with a smile on your lips
(when I’m gone)
know that you’re carrying me
