quietly, beneath a manicured imitation of nature
lie our fallen; some forgotten, some remembered.
below these lawns of the dead slumber our heroes:
here a yard of graves with our family and friends;
there a field of cold tombs of allies and partners;
there a green pasture for our foes and enemies –
returning to their earth and becoming one with it,
becoming one with each other in an organic unity,
sharing a fellowship of shalom in a common bed…
from out of this, life raises high its proud banner!
