Something Unknown by Dawn Watts

Tw/: death

I watched his body lay still in the casket. He looked as if he could still take a breath, surrounded

by blue satin. I summoned my hand to touch his arm. Hard as stone. Fingers fused together.

His body is just a reminder he was alive. Saddened by the absence of his spirit, where has he


Nothing will grow but sorrow for the spirit.

Rain falls

The lost fruit

On the vine
