The Wild Unknown Tarot - Death XIII

This is a very simple image and doesn't take much description:
Against a background of darkness lies the skeleton of a decomposing bird. To me it looks like a baby bird. Some feathers are still there but it's dead, dead, dead... No coming back..

This card depicts Death perfectly to me..
Death is inevitable, it happens to everything and everyone. There is no escaping it and no reversing it.
It is sad, sometimes scary, often painful but necessary.
When something has died, it decomposes and that decomposition feeds what is to come next. Without death there can be no new growth..
