Buried Treasure

Castle in the sand

indicates the location

A buried treasure

where once we sat and sunbathed

Lost to a watery grave

Walls

when the walls around us close,
we will sit around our meager light
until it burns into the dirt floor
and becomes a memory

REMEMBERING THEM IS DEEP SORROW

Remembering them   
is deep sorrow piercing the  
inconsolable 
heart that must weep to release 
what the flesh can't overcome.

Silky pink petals, a wreath

Create canopy

Guard love one, at peace, beneath

Your presence shall ever haunt

The Cloudiest Day

I didn't like losing you
And my tears cried the truth
With rain that came
On the cloudiest day
Like heaven was crying too

MANKIND'S LAST HOPE

Life like Autumn's leaves
returns to Earth's coldest soil; 
Nature reawakens
each spring, but life never does:
Mankind's last hope lays in grave.

dandelion clock

dandelion clock
on the half hour
and he might miss his train

he does
and curses strongly
enough to stir the dead

these
are blowing dandelion clocks
stifling their graves

Short Grave poem by Katie Telling| Details | |

House Fire

Ashes drift
to the ground
like black snow,
and smoke curls
upward from
the rubble like
ghostly figures
emerging from the
grave.
A skeleton now looms
in the clearing,
surrounded by heaps
of its charred flesh.

Short Grave poem by jack horne| Details | |

Buried, not Cremated

Here lies the arsonist, Ash James -
Although, he would have chosen flames.

It amazed us, once, to see the grave of a notorious pyromaniac in a local grave 
yard - I know that she would have certainly preferred cremation!

Short Grave poem by Dr. Upma A. Sharma| Details | |

Clouds




                  Indomitable ,
         
            Intrusions into nature,

          Mushroom clouds high up!
