It is an experience in itself
digging a land
which lay barren
for a century and more.

A hoard of termites
and spiders unknown
springs up. Buzz
and bite with a sting.

Never have seen many species
as they come out from the hives
long and short, brown and black
disastrous in outlook.

More  happens
as I go deep into the endeavour
excavating stone sculptures
abandoned for ages.

Apprehensive of the living
and the nonliving, I process.
Might unearth many more
in the next procedure.

The land looks graceful
with a magnificent dwelling
and a splendid garden
a grandiloquence.
