Passing On

It's #FindYourSong Friday - the day for music, art, film and poetry about life, death and immortality. Here is this week’s pick (click the link to read the poem):

Passing On

By Andrew Motion

This week I chose Passing On by Andrew Motion with the theme of #WatchLifeUnfold as my guide. Motion explores the hyperawareness we can experience when someone is near the end of their life. Every detail of the room becomes more vivid. We notice how we breathe or if our clothes are too loud. We notice what the toothbrush is doing. In the face of death, we become masters of watching life unfold.

Do you have any creative works you would like to see featured on #FindYourSong Friday??

Please share, ask questions, leave comments, suggest topics, and tell stories! I want to hear about your moments of magic, miracles, and synchronicity.

Dare to be immortal.
