Nature’s Commentary on Life and Death

Old gray marble headstones
crevasses sprout vivid mossy green

nature’s commentary on death

Solid marble: smooth, cold, and heavy
– eroded and weathered –
historic in man’s time; fetal in geologic

nature’s commentary on permanence

The youngest was four.
Tuberculosis? Some long forgotten pox?

nature’s commentary on fairness
