What remains of civilization

The civilized ghosts were potsherds , standing on no legs. Their nothing rose up to hot sun showing up in cowherd clothes, waiting for bus.The then cowherds along with cows turned souls standing among potsherds of the then mud.

Mud comes in combinations of things and men.We break to reinvent them afresh all through time under same sky, with a blazing sun studded in it.

The next time you visit archaeology sites, look for potsherds of earthy existence in wall plinths.
