Earth

24 Apr

For day 22 of napowrimo – Earth Day

Earth
Under my feet
As I step close
To your resting place

Earth
Dug from the ground
Piles of brown dirt
That you will replace

Earth
Thuds onto you
Covers the smile
On your sweet face

Earth
I pat the earth down
My whisper ‘goodbye’
There’s no other trace

    I loooooooove this, B!

    At the end, cover me in dirt.
    Don’t cry.
    I’ll give back to the earth
    and feed the flies.
