Cemetery Poem by Guillermo Veloso


A late spring
Wind bastes
The bony
Tombstone spine
Ancient trees
Silent guardians
Of the loamy dead
Breath easy
in Time

    Ahh so much to love here; winds basting the bony tombstone spine, the loamy dead..
    what a fertile imagination this must have sprung from. Stunning simplicity seems to be the MO. (Report) Reply
