Nearby Dale's Grave

Two fawn stood beyond Dale's grave and fed on fallen acorns. A doe, then a second deer haltingly drew near. One buck hung back where grass met woods, head raised, watching. . . like my dear brother - apart from family, yet not too far away. For the Ten Lines Poetry Contest of Heather Ober

Andrea, I had no idea this was about your brother. That makes it that much sweeter. I can think of no better way to honour a lost loved one.

I love this sweet write - and the ending is a gem. My dad is 74 today, by the way - I wonder if he's a lot like Joe.

Ah ha! I found another one. Great. Why don't you try "The Afternoon of a Faun," that wonderful Debussy work. I'll bet you could come up with something beautiful. Love, Dave
