This one is more than a metaphysical thought, but also speaks to the reality of the moment. Deep in earth is where we console ourselves that our loved one’s body is safe. But in reality, deep in earth is simply a way to take the waste of life from our sight.
This one has only 2 lines which is pretty much the shortest poem in the world. But it also makes this one hard to review because of its shortness.
This poem needs to get points for having only 2 lines but still being able to pack a punch with their directness and simplicity.
I give this poem 2 / 5
