Dying Alive

Dying Alive
             by Odin Roark

Cultivating
Seeding
Nurturing
Weathering
Gathering 

How generous the bounty
Bruised and perfect
Life’s full basket 
Hoisted upon the shoulders of experience
Carried as pain’s reward
Needing not a marketplace
Accepting fruition as recompense
Knowing wealthy are those
Who die healthy of mind
