Alone

How deep is a grave?
A six-foot shaft in the soundless earth.
A bleeding turf.
A fill.
Then soon, just a deep seamed scar
On a lone green hill.

We're Doomed, And some people just dig themselves into a deep hole. Glad you like the photo.

Ashes to ashes
dust to dust
let's love while we can
and in good energy trust.

We were at the country grave yard on Friday to bury my uncle. It was so amazing to walk around and see the people I knew as a child in our area. I am going to be buried there when I go.

Dawn, There is a little country graveside just beside the homestead land my great grandfather farmed. Many of my relatives are buried there and I always feel very at home visiting it.
