Death and Life

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads the sisters Death and Night ~ Micro Poetry

 

Gazing with malicious grin

The Grim Reaper comes harvesting

Generations of the never-ending

Circle of life.

Death may swipe

Infant innocence or guilt aghast,

But humanity eludes his grasp.

On a bright bed of flowers, Eve, the source of life,

Defiantly refuses

To become Death’s wife.

    1. Klimt adored women and they loved him. His women all had strong personalities or were very creative. If I could go back in time, it would be to Vienna to spend even just a few hours in his company 😊
