Heart and Rain

When death befalls

Creatures die

Plants decay

The maggots and bacteria

Consume the flesh

To minuscule excrement

Then the sky heaves

The roots hold their ground

And oxygen rises

Hydrogen gathers

Until the grey clouds release the rain

Cleansing the rot away

Into the earth

Feeding the roots to the green leaves
