KEEPIN’ ON

           KEEPIN’  ON

Don’t say why, say how.

Why presupposes an

unattainable degree

of reason, as in truth.
 

Happiness happened

in graduate school, with

wonder and growing edges

always in process,
 

Connecting in the same

tongue searching for the

how, puzzled  by all the

unsolved mysteries
 

All the learning not

yet used!  The flying bishop,

prophetic dreams, who,

what when where how
 

The tip of the plow

still unearthing that

which might be now

or in the future.
 

Could quantum mechanics,

going with the flow, free us

to occupy a niche in

our haunted cave?
 

I’m still curious and

not willing to leave my

lust for understanding

back with my bones.
 

Should that occur, I shall

go out hollering and hope

to transition into someone

else’s Muse.

WHITHER WILL THOU GOEST??

“We are here today to share in the memories of those who have passed on before us.” But what happens after we die?”

Some people believe that when they die they go to heaven and spend eternity basking in the light of God’s love.

Some people believe that when they die the fate of their soul is determined by karma’s balance sheet.

Some people believe that when they die, they will take an honored place among the ancestors where they will dispense advice to the living.

Some people believe that when they die they will reach Nirvana–a place of oneness and nothingness.

Some people believe that after they die they are reincarnated from one life to the next, learning the lessons that they need–in a state of continuous evolution.

Some people believe that when they die they will not be conscious but their atoms will join the growth of new life on Earth.

Some people believe that when they die they will be reborn into a world that cannot even be imagined.

Some people don’t know what they believe.

Which one would you vote for?

 

 

 

 

I JUST DIED

Published July 11, 2017 by Nan Mykel

I JUST DIED

What’s it like? Like nothing else.

I’m liquid, and by the way I am we, not me.

Not gotten used to it yet

It’s kinda like I’m my own blood stream

–or, I mean we are. Life is everywhere,

and alive.  We were like bumps, sticking

out of the stew. Now we are

interchangeable, if that makes any sense.

Shut your eyes and feel the force field?

We are it.
