June 29, 2008


By Stephanie Barrows

Let my body become One
with the Earth
Mold my legs into roots
my skin into bark
my blood and organs into cork
Transform my arms into branches
my fingers into leaves
Let the birds nest in my hair
the insects
feast on my body:

And when I die,
scatter my ashes
in the forest
so I may return to the earth
from whence I came.

- Stephanie Barrows lives in Lawrence.
