The Spirit Of Pure Energy

Where does the spirit of life go when you pass away?
Sometimes you can see it leave the body behind,
like a cloud evaporating on a hot summer's day.

I know it travels upwards I suppose into space,
but where does it go and what does it do
after spending a lifetime in just one place?

Logic dictates that it returns to the source of all energy,
perhaps toall the data it has stored
as a spiritual servant of humanity.

After purging, it may well be released to seek out a new birth,
so it can again gather information in the form of energy
on any planet in the universe like that of Earth.

No one knows where the universe's energy emanates from,
but still it expands without end and becomes ever stronger.
Perhaps we do help by dying, so that life's energy lives on.

This is a great poem.your poem The Brain,Body,Spirit,and Soul is a masterpiece this one is too.
This sounds a quite philosophical theme and it has to be viewed from a philosophical angle. In my view Buddhism has a clear explanation to this whole idea. Buddha's wisdom has seen through all these 2600 years ago, quite clearly and shown that every material thing finally boils down to mere energy, which scientists of today too have come to a settlement with. Yours seem a very thought provoking and carrying a profound meaning. Congrats for being the member's PoD. Thanks for sharing.
Piece of great elegance. A childbirth of profundity with rendition of words to utmost justice. Am really short of words to describe the sheer brilliance of the poem. A masterpiece! Thanks for sharing Orlando and do remain blessed.
Matthew 26: 64 - Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. Matthew 24: 30 - And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 1 Thessalonians 4: 17 - Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Nahum 1: 3 - The LORD [is] slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit [the wicked]: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds [are] the dust of his feet. Revelation 21: 4 - And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Wonderful poem- voted 10.
