Death is at my side
No need for a funeral
Vultures fly above

What? That you’d like a vulture circling above you at your deathbed? Lol. Do tell!
this is the hardcore version:
Image result for sky burial
Sky burial (Tibetan: བྱ་གཏོར་, Wylie: bya gtor, lit. “bird-scattered”) is a funeral practice in which a human corpse is placed on a mountaintop to decompose while exposing to the elements or to be eaten by scavenging animals, especially birds of prey.

Great haiku Rose…
Great comment from my great Lady D. Thank you! ❤
🙂 you’re truly talented Rose. I hope you have a wonderful evening 🙂
Oh, Thank you!! And a wonderful evening for you, too, darling 🙂
Turkey vultures…they always know where to find me.
Your haiku involves death — stop making me blush! Haha
So, that’s a turkey vulture? I would not want it on my table for Thanksgiving! It’s a beautiful photograph, Fly!
Sheesh, what doesn’t make you blush? 🙂
Turkey vultures taste goooood!
I know, right? Wait…why am I blushing? Damn!
Look! It’s a wooden sword!! Ha! — Made you blush 😀
That dash is making me blush!
I don’t know what my problem is — but when someone shakes their head — my face turns beet red!
Very thought provoking. Excellent.
Thanks Alan! Vultures are very thought provoking; especially if you’re walking in the desert and have run out of water and food. Yes, I would say so, too! 😀
Well hello Mrs. Sweeney Todd! What a pleasant invitation for lunch.
I don’t know… even though roadside kill is untainted by GMO grain feeding as well as hormones and antibiotics, the latest research shows that red meat might contribute to disease anyway especially if it has been run over by several automobiles and trucks and left on the streets baking in the sun for several hours. Sure, it’s all natural except for the remnants of synthetic rubber from the tires. On the positive side, vultures avoid the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and heterocyclic amines (carcinogenic compounds) that cooking roadside kill on a grill or at high temperatures on an oven produces. I’m not quite sure, but processed food is starting to sound pretty darn good at this moment!
It looks like I have my work cut out if I am going to save you from the dark side!!
You do *not* know how much I look forward to your comments and also the anticipation knowing that I’ll probably be laughing quite heartily! Well, you didn’t disappoint me 😀
I need the dark to write my stuff — gee, doctors are always trying to save people 🙂
People accept (perhaps with some queasiness) whatever is common in their culture while being grossed out by whatever is not. I find sky burial a little less disturbing than embalm-and-gawk.
