Wishing soft for silken wrapping
Layered binding, clean and hidden
As I surrender usual systems
Allowing death of self.

Response to 'cocoon', the prompt this week at OSI

Thank you Amity...yes, a little cocooned time out, if only!

And Ramesh :) I rarely trust a man who says 'trust me':P ...but I am wondering what you mean...

Surrender usual systems
allowing death?

I think not.

Death is Yes - in any case.

imagine a place so soft, so hidden, that it is safe to release all that is prepared to fall like petals, like rain.

Beautiful, beautiful poem!
