HUMUS




Excavate the tomb
Exhume humus

Death
Decay
Disintegration

The dank ugliness
Of it
Of me

Reduced
Returned
To nothing

Ash Wednesday's
Reminder

Remember!
I forgot

And never thought 
To die while still
Alive

The humbling
Of the self

Long seasons
Of dust
Laid waste

I am the soil
The seed that
Waits

The warming sun
The morning dew
The harvest of the lowly

Risen
Restored
Regained
