FIELDS OF PASTS

There's just something very peaceful about it...

Completely relaxing.
Very enjoyable.
Non-threatening.
Life-rejuvenating.

In no other place can you find so many gracious
And encouraging words of advice.
"Laws" on life.

A giant hug embraces your soul and leads you.

With every passing name
Curiosity grows.

How did they live?
What joys could they share?
What lessons from losses can they offer?

And now pray they are at peace
And they offer us the same.

From all over the world, we share the same finality.

And here, we lie in pastures green.
Each plot a generous offering.

More refreshing than a glass of mint tea
On a warm, breezy summer afternoon...
To sit among friends of the past.

To let their synergies grace your very being.
To listen without hearing a word.

Solace is found here.

Definitely relaxing....a place I'd certainly like to visit!  Wonderful work.

Like a lotus blossom, ne'er sprinkled by water,
Let me, like a unicorn, in solitude roam.*~ Hymn Of Buddha

thanks for enjoying!

you CAN visit this place...i find cemetaries and old graveyards to be a great escape...especially really old ones...so full of history, and the way the epitaphs were written, you almost get to know the souls of the past...for those interested in some very meaningful prose, go visit the stones and take a notebook with you!  you never know what masterpieces you may stumble across on your venture!

WoW, this is great, and I might take you up on that idea Saturday when I go to the cemetary for a funeral.
