Tanka 25

25.
The strip of walled green
stranded between two highways.
The cemetery
where the long-dead lie in rows
parallel to traffic flow.

  1. Yes. I am looking forward to having some time to re-visit some of my local favorites, meaning – local, such as Hillside in Roslyn PA and the Ukrainian one in Abington Township. Even in cold weather they are welcoming, I think. I may be alone in thinking this… but I do.

  2. Yes, that is exactly how I feel, and why I like to visit cemeteries. Each person has left a little reminder behind and we remember, but we also realize we are still walking on the earth. Our story is not done.
