    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

    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.
