Among the Trees
 Days of fallHow i walkWith lost feet with moth- like shoe lacesmany ways I shall not stepthru the cathedrals of treesHow the leaves flowBeyond on me.Smooth and soothing. My scarf shiversIn the beauty.Clumsy  thing of yarn and time.How i look and cannot shiverFor in my simplest can only findtransparent in the leavesthe suppleness of my end of days Filled with the scripturesThat I have hidden in the jars of my heartAnd the tears upon my cheeksgiggleas the nude moon swimsBetween the chanting branches Beyond expectations that beckon me with a ghostlike sheenfor all shall pass like the descanting leavesfor strength is just a passing flowerfor first it blooms and then it withers and so i shall pass meekly  into the halls of no returnwith the singing of sparrows of my scripturesand a lamp no other eye can seeshall provide fullness to my empty hands…

Yes, that is the way isn't it....sounds like you have summarized the grand plan true it is that we shall only be an unseen glimmer one day...perhaps it can be felt? well, ashes to ashes....and life in between.

Well writ my friend.

Best wishes,
