Beauty Displayed in Death

Looking outside, I see thousands of dying leaves;
 my hope is that when I grow old and start to wither away,
 my life will reflect some small portion
 of the beauty
displayed in the death all around us…

…and until then
to live with the hope of resurrection
in that eternal spring
when I go to be with God.

  1. Our death — not a sting, but a spring… of renewal, of reunion, of true beauty — thought-provoking post — thank you for sharing your son’s words! Blessings, Laurie
