On this, the very last day
of interacting with the world,
I need to say, to Mother Nature:
you have been the most wonderful lover.
I will miss feeling the touch
of your wind on my face,
miss hearing the song of the river,
miss watching the silver dance
of sunlight on ocean waves.
Thank you for the beauty
with which you have blessed my life.
I will have my caregivers
park me at the window
in my easy chair, so I can still watch
your unfolding wonders
through the glass.
for Izy's prompt at Real Toads on this last day of poetry month: our final words before losing all communication with the outer world.
