Far from the Graveyard

Luna Cemetery

Far from the graveyard
spring storm drives three crows off course—
what do the dead care?

  1. This is very good. Even a touch of the seasons. Those that grieve do care though, but probably not about the crows!

      I’m SURE the dead don’t care about the crows, nor do those who grieve! Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your comment.

  2. Angels and flowers, someone was very well loved in life.

  3. Well loved and never forgotten. Happy RT2!

    Mine’s here.

  4. What a nice and cheerful touch for this grave !

  5. Lovely post, although quite poignant.

    Thank you for participating in Floral Friday Fotos!

  6. I like how the sun keeps shining suggesting that flowers will keep blooming even when some life seems to have moved on! Strange how this haiku and image generate a mix of feelings!

  7. interesting that you should have a photo of a gravestone…..I visited the family plot before I wrote my haiku

  8. A recurrence of your 3 crows! You have an affinity with them, methinks? (no, not calling you a crow… heh)

  9. Very poignant post for me today. In the last few weeks I have traveled across a half dozen states to attend three funerals. In fact going from one graveside to another as quickly as wheels could take us.

    Plus, during this time I received the final verdict from my doctors as to what will be the cause of own demise, hopefully yet many years into the future.

    Sorry, to be so slow returning this visit. I am still playing catch up from all our travels and hospital visits.
