Headstones

Walking the dog among the old stones.

Thinking about each life.

Names of old….Hanna, Faith, Elmer, Jacob.

John Hamilton “Dad”..that says a lot.

Robertson “Native of Scotland” 1869

and newer arrivals..Robert Vietnam 1971.

I talk to them.

Thank Stanley for his service in WWI.

Fighter pilot Joe in WWII.

Elmer a Doctor died 1868.

Vulture overhead 146 years too late.

Fresh Flowers on old grave

Someone remembers

They all breathed the air, felt the wind and the love and the pain.

I ponder my own mortality.

Just like someone who walked here in 1930.

Did they have a dog?

Are they here too?
