Lid lifting

If we are to possess an after-life mind

it is then we shall find

the other explained parallel meaning called death

when gone the breath and our souls into enigmatic spaces

feared unknown places where earthly beliefs may possibly end

beliefs that we allowed to infer

how foolishly, naively we had clung

to myths and gods that never were.

And I am hoping for the same as you Manish with all of my heart
Your comment M.C. is not only interesting but also paints a very beautiful and yes spiritual picture, a poem almost in its own right-lovely!

And thanks very much also to Helene, Holden, Hugh.

Humanity has always sought something to provide a cause or
reason for devotion and I wonder if we are programmed for that
purpose, insofar our various "devotions" all seem to have their
focus in the heavens - that impossible to comprehend vastness
of who-know-what - with the Moon like a "greeter" at its door,
waiting to guide us on our respective ways in both life and the
spiritual hereafter.

This is hauntingly beautiful, Grace. Am afterlife will always remain a mystery, but I hope the most suffered souls get a paradise in their afterlife.🌻
Thank you.
