Tale Weaver #126 – Death – 29/6/17


Google images: Labelled for re-use.

They say there are two certainties in life, taxes and death.

Recently I have been surrounded by deaths occurring in the lives of several friends. Death takes on many forms.

In this week’s tale weaver I’m asking you to consider the concept of death in a way that you relate to.

What does it mean to you?

Your experience could be the death of a family member, a loved one, a neighbour.

It could be a death as in the end of a relationship.

You could use it as my mother used to say: “You’ll be the death of me.”

In your writing explore your feelings towards whatever issue you explore…..it is not an easy topic for many to write about and there is a finality about it….not many return to tell us of their experiences…

You could even explore the concept from death’s point of view….if you have read any Terry Pratchett you’ll have encountered his death character.

    How many brown- and blue-eyed boys & girls
    rode this life like stallions on steroids,
    convinced they’d sit forever in the saddle
    rounding up dreams, corralling false hopes,
    wearing blinders like their wild horses?

    Poets have made the matter quite clear:
    Nothing stays forever. We all meet you, Mr. Death.
    We all stand at the watering hole,
    our heads abuzz with plans for the day
    that you will change with the tap of your claw.

    Mr. Death, no use asking for more time.
    You have appointments to keep, hearts to stop,
    eyes to shut without promise of a blink.
    Life’s been good and life’s been bad.
    Dismounting, I will go quietly with you.

      You are right when the time comes there’s not a lot of arguing to be done. I did like your response to this prompt. Thanks so much for adding to the tale weaver.
