Burial - In the Shadow of Leaves
Dappled in light & dark; a place to watch from, think, write, make & show images
It would be a good place to stay for a long time, to watch the leaves curl and uncurl each year, watch the branches thicken and lichen invade fresh territory. I lay beneath a clump of mistletoe today and the breeze kissed me. Gray bark plates and cynipid wasp galls, swelling: I would like to be planted beneath one of these one day, to have this flesh turn to a pulse of deepening green in spring leaves, to have ground squirrels burrow in the softer ground that I become, their hearts beating between my ribs.

Thoughts like mine about being buried at Towrang. From Chris Clarke's blog 'Creek Running North', always recommended.
