Here,
to you
before
the soil
gives way
to soul.
I express
that death
is a gratitude
for a life well
lived and words
well toiled.
All the years of my
life, I shall dig with a
pen in memory of the
shovel.
The soil is thrown in every direction like the start of a legend about how the world was created.
