his spirit is a wand'ring vine

by Treagal

his spirit is a wand'ring vine
that creeps along and little more;
wriggling to break through to sunshine.

each flower placed upon his shrine
a mem'ry full of blessed light for
his spirit is a wand'ring vine.

in doom-hues dizzied from night's wine
he pricks the shovel-packed dirt floor
wriggling to break through to sunshine.

crazed by the scent, his lover's sign,
an upheaval splinters the chore;
his spirit is a wand'ring vine.

sprung loose from the six-foot confines
his wife grieves for the loss of core;
wriggling to break through to sunshine.

withered by the sight, he resigns
himself to what death has in store.
his spirit is a wand'ring vine
wriggling to break through to sunshine.

    I just re-read it and must say that I love it much better than before. It sounds as if his wife is buried next to him. Is that what you were trying to do? You are a master of this form.
