Death and deathless

We are at one end of a rainbow, cradling the body

Death is just a mirage from the other end

Bridging the divide, between death and deathlessness

Is the mind, when seen from a far distance

May reveal where death ends and deathlessness begins

A red line few seek to cross, the rest are blissful, in ignorance

Forgetting the rain will surely stop, but the sun will continue to shine

It is deathless as far as we are concerned, nourishing bodies

Caught in the slowing tightening vise grip of death

Even as the mind appears deathless, donning the garb of desire

That mimicry of the soul’s nature will find no takers

At the other end of the rainbow, where eternity begins
