Mud Is Made of Earth and Water

    One day, when you will not open your eyes, surely,
    you have died.
    Or your eyes will stay fixed and glassy
    and someone will close your eyelids with the palm of their hand.
    Not to be frightened by them,
    by the look of the lifeless glassy sockets:
    dull, pale and terrifyingly
    stiff and eternal!
    Once, I saw that a dog dying
    and men departing from this world
    look the same.
    In everyone's lifetime,
    there are three moments:
    birth, marriage, and death.
    In the final score,
    only they count
    but only one of the three
    can be avoided
    by every being.
    Animals do not get married
    neither do plants
    or stones.
    The marriage between oceans and continents
    lasts far too long to be understood.
    Mud is made of earth and water . . .
