All good things are yours.

  1. Lovely, peaceful shadow shot for the day and lovely words to match! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  2. beautiful resting spot…may they be resting in peace.

  3. Funny-Joe Spado talked about it in his post today about a lot of Mary’s at grave sites. I was just pondering that yesterday as I looked at all my images of Mary-mostly from grave sites. I wonder how that practice came to be? You find the most stunning images of her in all kinds of places. Love your poem too, of course. Such connection!

  4. Very beautiful and peaceful images for Rebecca’s event for Our Lady ~~ thanks, namaste, Carol (A Creative Harbor)

  5. Peacefull. 🙂 Thank you for sharing her. ❤

  6. Ah yes, the cemetery. I lov e just walking through them when I am down inn the Southwest. Always so colorful, and always a lot of Mary things on every site. Great photo.


  7. ah, great, restive photo and wonderful haiku to match. I love the word “whisper”. happy SSS to you MMT.

  8. i love the comfort of this …
    and in return offer you the same,
    “all good things are yours”.

  9. All good things are yours. I love that so much.

  10. Teresa must have been very beloved by her children and grandchildren to have such a monument. The graves are so close together…Is this an outdoors cemetery? I’m curious, where in Mexico was this ShadowShot taken?

  11. Ah, such peace this grave shows as Our Lady shows the deceased person the way to heaven. Cemeteries are among some of the holiest places on earth.

  12. I love the little poem…simple and comforting.
    And the picture too…are those tiles?
    So many things I would have never seen.

  13. Awww… so sad to see like this but so solemn. Looks so peaceful

    Great shots! I would love to grab the photo of Heart of Mary §:-)
    I am bad girl tonight. It’s almost midnight, that’s why!

    Happy SSS, maam,

  14. These shadows are providing great coverage for those at rest.

  15. A lovely, peaceful Haiku to accompany this photo. Very nice.

  16. And May She Whisper the same to Present Souls, especially yours, MMT.

  17. I love your haiku, and the picture fits it perfectly.

  18. Such a peaceful spot, and lovely shadows

  19. Oh so peaceful and soothing! well done haiku!

  20. Such gentle, restful shadows . . .

  21. Beautiful wreath! I love the Haiku too!

  22. R.I.P.
    Grey, rainy but peaceful greetings from Helsinki where we have daylight from 9.30 am – 15.15 pm. 🙂

  23. Such a lovely thought….

  24. Wow…so very humbling!!!

    Here is my link to my shadow shots If a tree falls in the swamp, do you HEAR it?

    Hope you’re having a great weekend.

  25. The haiku and the photo match well…and I like how the poem offers comfort, oddly enough, more for the living than the dead. We think and worry so much about our loved ones in the afterlife, and I suspect sometimes we suffer more pain than they do because of the loss.


  26. Some of my favourite places in Mexico are the cemeteries. Nice haiku.


  27. cemeteries are great places to just sit and ponder….great places for poets to hang out…thanks for this
