an eternal monument

Than to build a huge monument.

Monument Valley
To write and wander
among the spires

Her mystery ancient,
each look inspired

The sand the measure
of all between

What’s in my soul
—and unforeseen

She is deaf 
He is blind 
An aged couple 
Now, neglected
And abandoned by
Their ‘’KIDS’’
She sees for him
He listens for him
Beggars are they now 
Just for living 
A living monument 
For love and negligence

Tashunka Witko Beyond Self
A man clad in mystery,
history would learn

His face on the mountain,
immortality earned

A man from tomorrow,
reliving today

Intrepidly fated
—truth on display

Premium Member A monument
Holding the pencil 
In my hand 
I tighten it 
And lift in over my head 
Towards heaven
With love and anger in my heart

I thrust it downward
Lead first 
Into the earth
Until it stands free
One with the earth 
A monument

Cemetary Turned Into
Cemetary Turned Into

The next thing before we all knew
Cemetery ridge had turned into
Never understood what this meant
There were tombs near a monument
So sad and lonely was silent view.

Jim Horn

Onto next one.
