WHY DOES IT TAKE DEATH TO REACH A STAR?

While you walked the spiral road of life
and held infinity in one hand,
you touched life's elements.
You washed your face
with laughter coming from the Sun.
What will you paint today, yourself?
It's hard to find good models these days,
who can remain still during those long moments.
You loved painting Mother Nature
because of her stillness;
her non-movable force of external excitement.
You never had to look for her,
she was always waiting there for you.
She walked you through her day
by sharing her nakedness,
a part of her spiral road
that took you into the clouds
and let you play with the angels
that kept the gates of heaven open.
