The Ground Keeps Its Secrets

by sweetwoodjax

the ground whispers softly
but doesn't share its secrets
unmarked grave

the body beneath
became one with the earth
spirit cries out

forgotten child
is brought to the surface
proper burial


Selestia's poem the other day brought to mind my uncle's daughter that was found 20 years after her disappearance and he gave her a proper burial and funeral. thank you to cleo85 for great picture
