Rainbow

This is how death looks:
on Earth, a beginning and
an end.
But from the top of the sky,
it's a circle.

A circle of life and death - an apt image from a philosophical point of view. From a personal point of view, however, life has a beginning and end and so does death because the moment we become aware of our mortality, it's always at the back of our mind.

Am I reading your poem correctly?

Irina, I'm fairly sure there's no correct way to read a poem; it's all subjective and individual, yes?

For me, as a human who lives in this world, death has a beginning and end. But I believe if and when we escape this world's boundaries, we will find life is a circle, just like a rainbow is a circle when viewed from another perspective, like from the sky.
