I saw Death—Playing—
She was Running through the woods
Like a feral Horse—Neighing—
Ignoring the world of shoulds—

And I—for my Part—
Enjoyed watching her Game—
Until—It reached my Heart—
And to the List of death—my Name

Was added—in Ink—
And Death did send
Me—with a Wink—
To my beginning’s end—

... 'like a feral horse'. Great image. It'll stay with me, that one. Thanks.

"I saw DEATH - Playing"
Persephone- I liked use of "feral," as well.

You may have overdone caps a bit. See: "Time and Eternity."...I'd only cap: "DEATH," in piece this short. Was reference enough for me.

Enjoyed read,
Robert William
