In the Greenwood cemetery where we strolled as children all those summer nights so long ago, I stop to lay some flowers on the grave they laid you in before your chance to ever bloom. May 27, 2019 for the "Sijo Poem" Poetry Contest of Heidi Sands

A sad yet beautiful Sijo, Andrea. I hope this placed high. I love going round cemeteries; one of the places where I feel free to travel back in time! Regards // paul
