[Christmas Calendar] Day 21: When Everything Dies

Swans in bloom
like Convallarias
winds rusted beneath

of shadow kingdom

Route to an orchard

There bells wilt
feathers inhale petrol
the heart has exhaled.

Today is the last Advent, and my post describes an afterlife type of encounter. The photo was taken at the beach in Kerimäki last April. The song is the 10th track on God Is An Astronaut's sophomore album All Is Violent, All Is Bright. This post concludes the Advent/spiritual theme, as well as the season of Spring in photos. We have only 3 days left... *gasp*
