Graveyard

photo of the gravestone of a 76 year-old man with a plastic toy gun lying on it

Uncanny couple:
an old man and a toy gun—
may they rest in peace.

Storyteller

a grave enclosed in metal railings, part of which is broken and scattered in the ground nearby
Cemetery, Melrose, South Australia

Crumbled bones, grave sites,
enduring the test of time—
tell stories of gore.

Full circle

Trees cleansing themselves
shed dead skin and dry blossoms
retrieve life through death.

Fading

Once upon a time
tender life brought happiness—
flowers also die

A good place to die—
with flowers and company,
a good place to live.
