Litter and life

by Jean Manco 



Litter my soul across the  twilight places
Inhume my dreams in solitary spaces
To earth from ashes, dust to dust
To fertilise then, as we must
Earth's everlasting story
Rot on, rot on to glory



Life said - I am forever
See me where there is green
We come we go together
No trace where we have been
Except the life within us
Passed on to others so
Forever and forever 
The chain of life will grow
