“death is no bluff…but just another trick to learn” by Mitch Hicks

Death is no bluff...but just another trick to learn
Snapped thru the art gallery window in the very windy town of Bluff by Mitch Hicks. I did not see the name of the artist of this dark forboding painting. I dedicate this poem to the late Shirley Ballard who passed away this week and much loved by Lisa Thayer

Shirley Ballard 1925 – 2012

Actress and Miss California 1944

Life be can full of sunshine

Death comes as torment

Friendship drives compassion

For Lisa and Shirley they were of different times

Blending past with present

New tricks to learn

Sorrow breaks as the midnight tide slips away

She made you smile Lisa despite decay

Mitch Hicks – U.K.
