If i die in fall
(due to my own clumsiness)
as dry leaves crackle
cry over cake, then laugh at
my swift entrance into JOY!
Joining Gayle at dVerse today on theme of Japanese death poems (jisei).

Well expressed. Cry a bit and then laugh… Indeed, joy is on the horizon.

I also love the title, and I like the mixed responses culminating in joy.

That play on words ‘fall’ (which we call autumn) and ‘fall’ (the verb) – makes for a witty yet thoughtful take on the prompt.

Yes one would wish for joy rather than tears and hardship for those left behind.

I love that you inserted both humor and joy, Lynn. And those leaves of ours, not falling, but rising on a gentle, joyous breeze.

Ah, yes…fall does meet spring then!

Love this…and that you put a twist of humor in it. A swift entrance into joy…who could want more than that? Thank you for sharing, Lyn.

Oh how I like this! There is some gentle humor here and yet, such good advice and exactly what I wish for my death. Especially for people to afterwards, to mingle tears and laughter over good food with good company.
