A Poem by Joel M Frye

there is a vast peace
in the respite
of disease;
aware both of
infinite time
and finite life,
giving notice to
what endures,
what passes.
each moment hangs
glowing in
the sunset of eternity,
ripe and juicy
as the strawberry
from the cliff.
tiger of living above,
chasm of death below,
hanging by a 
breaking branch
with red-stained lips.
