Life, Death and Dirges

The Wolf Moon greets us on Friday, the day of Venus, while Mercury is in retrograde. It is a time when deep emotions swirl together and the unspoken needs to be heard, witnessed, and expressed. I struggle in the cold, dark times to release the words clogged in my throat. Superhubs and I had a deep conversation recently about death, afterlife and near death experiences. This is what emerged:

The Twin Jet Nebula, or PN M2-9, is a striking example of a bipolar planetary nebula. Bipolar planetary nebulae are formed when the central object is not a single star, but a binary system, Studies have shown that the nebula’s size increases with time, and measurements of this rate of increase suggest that the stellar outburst that formed the lobes occurred just 1200 years ago.

Life, Death and Dirges

I’m sorry I couldn’t stay
time has come for me to go
that’s OK, I’ll be fine
I’ve just run out of time
when I’m gone just
remember what we had
the good times and the bad
now that my story’s
reached the end
would you smile for me
now and then

I know that you’re sad
I know that you’re blue
but I know you’ll make it through
there’s more to life than we can see
you’ll be fine even without me
I promise you that
the sun will shine again
so smile for me now and then

now that I am gone
remember life goes on
when you keep me in your heart
we’re never far apart
I promise you’ll be happy once again
so smile for me now and then

Til next time ~ Remember to stop and smile ~JP
