I agree with you, maybe it comes from growing up on a farm. A good poem for the image too.
I like the sentiment in this poem. have you read 'Sophie's World' by justin Gaarder? We are stardust.Water Children
beautifully penned... We want to live but never grow old... we strive for materialistic things all our lives ,knowing that nothing is forever...
Beautifully beautiful! and you ask the leading question too!
Love it. Reminds me of Whitman - "Look for me under your boot soles".
An important point. Too many live in half a world - the material.

Wow You hit right on target...how amazingly written...
This piece is particularly well done, poignant, valid and searching.
"spread me on the earth, let me scatter awaylet me grow under your feet night and day"I love this stanza! It's what I want to happen to me!
Nice! I'll take a pine box! :)
me too... loved the "spread me on the earth, let me scatter away" part very much. good one."soil leaves on forever".. shouldn't the 'leaves' be 'lives' though.
i love this and agree wholeheartedly
