Memorials of those who lived and died

Headstones etched with varied dates and names

People just like us who lived their lives

Whom still remain a part of us today

Humanity’s resting place of those gone before

Ahead into eternity – we shall follow

Reminders of a truth we can’t ignore

A foreign passage we must one day swallow

To walk along the headstones and inspect them

Midst markers full of those I didn’t know

For me a sense of kinship and connection

While my heart fills with reverent overflow

Graveyards; not a place of fear or anguish

Just reminders of our fellowmen who passed

To think that one day sadness will be vanquished

What joyous thought – for such to come to pass

We live in solitary confinement. Information is the oxygen of the modern age. It seeps through the walls topped by barbed wire, it wafts across the electrified borders.



Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.

Near and Far

A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand. Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain? Kahlil Gibran quotes
