My first thought at seeing this weeks Magpie photo prompt (below) was
“There’s always room for Jell-O”.
I then read the sentence under the photo….
“a grave in the Novodevichy Cemetery, Moscow”
No room for Jell-O there.
As sweet and non-filling as it is…
you can’t take it with you
that’s a bone hard fact
but you certainly
a little something for dessert behind…
a gift to the world
a trinket or two of your time spent
here on this rock.
what would you leave
your mother’s eyes
your father’s voice
what would you give
to a world that held you
a deep fear of mine
worse than that
before your time
How’s it going so far?
Like my friend Braja reminds me
Don’t forget to laugh
