The Cycle

Sleeping
in great, deep holes
fallen like leaf litter
to decay and mulch
and then to rise again

in a breeze's brief clarity
a grass blade
the soft sweet scythe
of spring
undigging itself

an arm above terror
a sheath for hope
broken, bruised
but almost human
in mortality's thick soil

black as sleeping
