Life and Death Hug Each Other

Innumerable living things
Even of unknown species
Thrive on the body of the dead
That lie on the seabed -
The carcass of the giant whale,
They enter into it and come out
Of their shelter paramount,
It is their food
Source of their life on earth;
Death is the cause of their birth.
From the dead rises the living
Living thing kisses the dead
One death gives birth to
Innumerable living things ad arbitrium;
Life and Death hug each other ad infinitum.
