Greeting the Dead

I feel no greater peace 

than walking among the dead

treading above bones deep in the ground

laid to rest in the arms of Mother Earth 

The dead feel no pain

and carry no judgment 

There is no one more naked than a skeleton 

I find peace in darkness

undisturbed by blinding light

I can hide from the beasts of the night 

and sleep peacefully
