Death Poems For
The Grieving Heart
Book and CD

High Wire

In the matchless dance of life
There is discernment of death.
A quieting
Where once
A lively stepping,
A calming
Of intense pursuit.

The high wire of our being
Held taut at either end,
Even as it quivers
With the music of our souls.

The dance goes on.
Tempo alters
But not melody.
Life and death entwine
In destined harmony.
