Afterlife

What comes after death?
Questions that have no answers
are a waste of time.

Why worry about
life after death and ignore
our life during life?

‘What comes during life?’
may be a better question
to ask each morning.

The Number of Our Days

If our days are numbered
by the times that our heart beats
it seems an awful shame that
so much is spent in sleep,

so much spent cleaning bathrooms,
or washing up the dishes,
too little spent in berry picking
rambles in the ditches.

so little time spent searching
for the rainbow’s end,
for beauty or for wonder,
or for time spent with a friend.

So if our days are numbered
by the times that our heart beats
please let me use each second left
to make it twice as sweet.
