Poem – In This Life

I see the day slip into the night
and the trees I am surrounded by
reach into the darkness.

In another life after
I am the same essence
in a metallic shell.

In another life before
I am the farmer clearing
fields for wheat and corn.

In this life now
I am the culmination
of all experiences.

    1. Thank you! I’ve been working on new pieces exploring machine and nature and how this eventual integration impacts the soul and what truly makes us human.
