on an old graveyard, I found you again
after we lost you in January
the sun on my face, the gravestones shining
names and numbers, years, lived, and ended
love and loss, permeating the air, shimmering
and you in the midst of it all
with me, wherever I go
the oldest source of my life

One thought on “Anneliese”

  1. The amount of flora in this cemetery is quite amazing. I think having lots of plants in a place like that, almost allowing the graves to become overgrown (even if they look well-tended), adds a deeper dimension to the idea of ‘returning to the earth’. I find all the flora very appealing.
