Sight and sound of a cemetery

Are they
resting in peace
Or crying for help
down and deep

souls in heaven
rot of bones
getting rewards
buried in stones

Suffering
Hell and fire
rivers of milk
dames of desire

Repent repent
Emptiness
Feel guilty
Just nonsense

Enjoy till you die
Or refrain
Conflicting thoughts
Can’t abstain

One reality
Clear and sound
Death around
Death abound

  1. Stunning words. I found them moving. I did a nature study once of the different lichens growing on tombs. It felt a strange thing to do in a cemetery but made us look so much closer at the stone memorials. Your photograph and words brought back that memory. Great post.

    1. Many thanks Lita for your wonderful comment. We all need to spend some time every year in a cemetery to contemplate, good for our perspective on life and how we see it πŸ™‚

  2. Great post, AB! Its a nice reminder of how fragile our lives really are. And I like how old the headstones are. It brings a nice contrast to the present.
