A Root Under The Dark Soil



A thin, pale root
under the dark soil.

Is he dead?
 ---No, he is not.

Unknown,
Forgotten,
And forsaken,

---Yes, and yet he is alive.
alive.


Deep down in the ground,
where there is no light of the sky,

there,
he is meeting his God...now.


Therefore, friends, 
let us console him.

And let us sprinkle water on the soil
where he lies,

gently and most tenderly.
