Poem: Meeting Your Maker

 

Terminal, no hope or reason to keep going there is only the bucket list and checking off the final things before retiring from life itself.  It is time now to meet your maker and cross of the remaining items on the bucket list.

Mike jumps off a mountain

Meeting your Maker

From this view

the lip of a mountain

her echo seemed to float

then flow down the canyon

alone with nothing to lose

a bucket list still to fulfill

you share a quick moment

become one with your gods

watch the snow glisten once more

then jump to meet your maker

-Poem by Justin Germino
