Some thoughts about Ingmar Bergman’s “Seventh Seal”

i saw them walking over the mountain
way, way up high
i did not know where they were going
or
why
but
they looked majestic
walking with the reaper
but
he’s not reaping wheat;
it was the end of course,
the end of a powerful message
of Ingmar,
who i never completely understood;
that’s okay
because
he would never completely
understand me
if
he knew me
but
i thought his dark movie
generated thoughts
about what should be
what shouldn’t be
we might consider
and
he gave us an avenue to consider
things we may not have considered
before;
the chess game is over,
but
let the minstrel show continue.
