    It's almost a bit Stephen Kingish. The thought of sentient and omnipresent soil, watching your every move.

    Watching.
    Waiting.

    Brrrr. Makes me prefer the warmth of cremation. (Report) Reply

    A great representation of a dying childhood without being so direct on the topic, I love it.: P (Report) Reply

    an imaginative piece and i doubt if love of life could be expressed better. the tri-line rhyming stanzas are a brilliant bit of creativity allowing a sublte break from the other stanzas. I Love the roughandtumble and roughandfumble, so rich with imagery. It is very apparent, to me anyway, that these poems i’ve been reading were meant to be read aloud….many, many times (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
