The Finite Stuff of Man by Raymond A. Foss

The water, the minerals
our lives but a breath,
the finite stuff of man
gone in an instant
Like the grasses
cut, cast into the fire
nothing permanent in the body of man

More noble stuff
within the spirit
the living essence of our souls
Not bound by the limits of our bodies
life beyond this mortal coil

Like the heavens above us
a canopy of light
Our spirits soaring
at that moment of night

Through the shadow, the valley
our stars rising
leaping up from our vessels of clay
Our spirits joining the heavenly chorus
singing praises
to the one who made us all
