still I hunger for your touch
and vibrant humor.

  20. I think the plaques look a lot like people literally being hungry
    they are quite powerful

  21. Happily, the artist leaves a cross upon each ‘skull’ – so the look of the dead adds no fear! Cool art!

  23. What beautiful offerings you found.

  24. That is chilling!! A great haiku and nice for Halloween.

  25. these are words that speak of infinite love.
