Unmarked grave

I will write to you on another side of death that is waiting for many
Laying in a box with eyes covered by pennies
For to pay the ferryman as she transverses’ the Styx
She lies now prostrate' our benevolent testatrix

Charon bends his blades with sweat on his brow
No more tomorrows, gone is her now.
Only her past, to dissolve assuredly through time
Only bones now remain...    Poor mother of mine.

Thank you for your kind comments Abdul.

I enjoy reading and employing the myths from time to time within my poetry.

History can go back a long way 😉 even our own, if only we knew how to access it.

This is a very touching account by a sensitive soul in absence of any experiences of his mother who died giving life him.

Wonderfully imaginative poem enriched with Greek Mythological references.

She was lost to me at birth.

I have never written of her before. Perhaps as my own mortality was brought in to focus exactly a year ago my thoughts reach out further now than my memories.

That's really sorry sad. Mother is a great support. Those who have their mother's love are lucky, aah!! All but the plan of God.

Strength to you and me!

Alas I never knew her in life.

In death we were reunited.

May her soul rest in peace. May she be blessed with paradise as her eternal home🌷.

You have a sound knowledge of the terms used for the darker world.

Artistically crafted piece. Shows your verbal dexterity.

Sad write.... strength to you.💐
