Sometimes I Think


. . . it's beautiful.
The flag and the fireflies and the alpenglow light.
A slight breeze.
The trees rustle.
There are Whippoorwills in this field.
My footsteps.
It's the kind of quiet that's made up of a thousand soft sounds.



Sometimes I visit for perspective.
Others, I have no idea.

I drive by this small graveyard in the middle of a field on my way into town,
and feel pulled in.
Pull over.
Sit.
Don't know why, but I did it today.
Just for a few moments.

. . . Maybe because life itself is just for a few moments.
And I want to remember that as I make my way through it.

    I too am strongly pulled by cemeteries....there is a deep beauty to them
    and I find great solitude there
