We remember you,
though you lie beneath a stone
in the wilderness.

  1. A very moving place, all should visit.

  2. Yes, it is a very moving place. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Thanks for sharing this historical place ;–)
    Hugs and blessings,

  4. The shadow on the headstone adds the bit of darkness to this place which separates it from the bright sun. The darkness adding a mere touch of sadness from the light of life.

  5. Unusual gravestone. Not like anything I’ve seen. Excellent SS.

  6. The touches of shadow from the rock like headstone create a soft darkness bathed in light. A poignant atmosphere!

  7. Looks like a peaceful place 🙂

  8. A great haiku for headstone – a peaceful looking

  9. What a touching picture. Wonderful shadow shot and so moving.
    Happy SSS.

  10. a lovely simple gravestone,

  11. Ahhhh, sweet simplicity…just scatter my ashes to the winds, no cold stone reminder for me…just the wind.

  12. Very touching, this is a great choice!

  13. I’m trying to imagine the story of that person’s life…such a mystery for us in the present. But, still things like this give us a sense of…place, I think.

  14. Shadows might frame the
    tombstone in the hot desert,
    but we won’t forget.

  15. Very nice shot and so it touches my heart the words you’d shared.

    Very true indeed…

    Not in the world we forget under the tombstone, ever.

    Have a blessed week.

  16. Inspiring and touching shadow shot.


  17. The bright desert sunshine almost overwhelms the sadness of the little spot.
    Wonderful haiku!

  18. those are pretty yellow flowers 🙂

    Happpy MYM!
