the soul of Christmas

The soul of Christmas

 

Now that Hanukkah or Jul is upon us there talk about souls

floating about in listless bodies.

To believe that the soul is an entity a part of the body

is a fallacy the last bastions for the day-dreamers who think there is an afterlife?

The reluctance to accept death as an integral part of all life.

Graves are a gift to florists and those who steal flowers from graves

to make homes charming and festive.

So, what about the soul? does it disappear when Alzheimer comes knocking

one hopes the body will join the soul before memories are erased.

A very interesting one, Jan. There is so much to explore here. I once wrote a poem called 'Holding Bay', which posited the idea of some, at least temporary, haven after death. I'll post it sometime.
