Soil

we've ignored eachother for a long time
and I'm strictly an indoor man
anytime to call would be the wrong time

    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.

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

    the best poem I have read in a LONG time, its the circle of life I suppose...

    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
