Descending into the Earth

By Sandeep Mishra

Death unescorted by feet or form,
Difficult to trace bare bone footprint;
Discern its image in the mirror of vitality,
Its spirit draws breath in the body of life;
Death is interior of the slushy flesh,
Trial-mount on the funeral pyre;
Feel the body fabric burning;
You’re not descending into the Earth
But rising towards the eternal Sky,
And entering into a pristine nativity,
As the Sun sets, the Moon rises.
