The Spirit Answers
By Carl Scharwath

I, walking hand in hand with the spirit
Entered the garden of serenity
A place so tranquil and calm
Where every sound was in harmony
Including the sound of my soul

I did not know what lesson this was
Nor did I understand the feeling
It was warm and balmy to me
And surly not of past sensations
Blissful response, but more

Questioning the spirit about my life
But was silenced with a movement
A flowing undulation, a smoothed out wave
Not touching but conveying its meaning
Directly to my innermost essence

The realization was complete, the awaited moment arrived
Never did I think it so pleasant
My hope from when I could remember
That this is the way I would die.
