Poem #28 NaPoWriMo2013 ’30 Poems in 30 Days’

April 28, 2013

what if we could live forever

to never die

like the eternal jellyfish,

returning to polyp

at any setback or injury,

beginning again

renewed without resort to

finality or decay-

no slow running down

by gradual but relentless diminution,

no emptying down to husk-

instead,

perpetual motion,

the ever coiled spring,

an endless day

with no intervening night,

a lidless eye

that knows only light:

if we could live forever,

would that be

an affirmation

or denial

of Undying?
