As a child I played with soldiers
then later dallied in romance.
As an adult I played with power
and later with finance.
Then one day
I became part of a small funeral game
in which people dressed themselves
in dark gray
& near the place where my ashes lay
in fields of auburn grass
birds sang in a gentle breeze
as little ones
who knew nothing about "me"
joyfully played & danced.
|Ron:||Is human life but a child's play?|
|Linda:||It certainly seems that way.|
|Lis:||Is there no awakening? Is our life but endless play?|
|Linda:||Are you looking to me for answers?|
|Lis:||Well, I'm asking for an opinion.|
