Why is there no death
For dying in peace?
Same with death from natural
Causes that surely happens!

Notes to this poem…
There are death statistics for all kinds of reasons how people died. Yet, I don’t see one for where you died in peace, or “died peacefully”, as lots of obituaries like to say. Many of those people who died peacefully would have had cancers and such that would have categorized their deaths differently, but many died from natural causes as well, and in peace. Where are those stats?
The W-series poems comprise mostly of haiku or tanka composed during walks I took on the portion of Halifax’s waterfront known as the Harbourwalk, during the warmer months of 2018 & 2019, when the Seabridge was in place.
Thank you. I like it when I get thoughts like this where there should be a simple answer, but there isn’t one obvious to me.
