All That Lies Broken

All that lies broken
are unrejoiced bones  
buried beneath
the Devil’s shack
that was once full of life
until the watermill stopped
only to create life-taking strife
now these broken bones
lie still in wait
hoping to dance
once again
to the sound
of the living stream
and drink
the life-giving water
to thirst naught
in the lingering darkness
buried in the graveyard
of the soul
