It’s not ‘just’ a Skull…


Vacant eyes that cannot see

That which was of worth to me.

The tomb that housed my intellect

(It was still there, last time I checked 😉 )

My ‘After’ look long after pension –

A paperweight of odd dimension;

My silent prompt, that underneath,

We’re all just really bone and teeth.

AL

In life we force a friendly face –

A smile which oft’ seems out of place.

Though death proves even in despair

That neither skin nor nail nor hair

Will outlive this fantastic smile,

Which renders any skull worthwhile.

Though we may face the face of death

Before we breathe our final breath

Skulls serve as silent souvenir

Lest we forget: we once were here.

~☼~

Allow me to introduce to you: AL – all the way from Bali 😉

Thank you for the newest addition to my Skull collection, Una!

He’s a beaut… and he knows it 😀

    BB, hierdie is briljant geskryf, ek is skoon opgewonde. Maar, soos Seegogga tereg sê, ook “sad”. Maar waar. En dan is daar AL. Man, hy is manjifiek!

      AL… wat oorgebly het, ja 😉 Hy word vir my al hoe mooier hoe langer ek na hom kyk 😀

    ek gaan die nou dadelik vir my P/A stuur – sy kyk ook anders na ‘n “skull” as wat ek daarna kyk.
