Winter Gravestones



I am getting older

not too old
but old enough to see
memories in graveyards,
and to ponder,

                                 someone's father who tilled the land
a youth who road a bike on country roads
a farmer's wife who raised chickens

gardens in the fall
winter snow
spring thaw
and how
some things die
while others live forever

if only in our minds
