“All things that have form eventually decay.” -Orochimaru”
― Masashi Kishimoto
There beneath thorny brambles
a tuft of soft fur devoid of life
a scattering of chalky bones
all that’s left-
remnants of a tiny soul
With those final dying breaths,
did her mind hasten her away
to the flowering meadow
where she once played?
