Life & Death Are One

For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.

–Khalil Gibran

Life & Death*

look at love
how it tangles
with the one fallen in love

look at spirit
how it fuses with earth
giving it new life

why are you so busy
with this or that or good or bad
pay attention to how things blend

why talk about all
the know and the unknown
see how the unknown merges into the known

why think separately
of this life and the next
when one is born from the last

–Rumi
