Driving through the green woods
she stopped and saw what she called,
"Holy Stones".

A beautiful, green cemetary peppered with markers
sunlit by the smiling sun god.

She knows that I am strange
but I just love how she can rearrange
my thinking.

I do so love to walk among the titles of lives that were lived.
God smiling down,
I do not want to frown.

Never did I hear that sacred place
called that way before.
What a way to adore!
"Holy Stones".

I made a joke
and said, "Holy Stones, where are the
bones?"
And she said,
"No one is there
they are all with God.
The bodies are shells,
the souls are with God."

I had thought of them resting there
without a care
or with God up above
engulfed in His love.

We see dimly now
it's true .
But I certainly like her view.
"Holy Stones"

Let's go take a walk
and see who has left
let's talk
about the "Holy Stones"
that pepper our lives.

She is so wise.

I like walking through graveyards,too. The artwork on some are amazing and it really helps to clarify what really matters in life. I liked how you repeated "Holy Stones", it really works, good form.

Those are empty tombs and resonating stones now , Meridith...
Superb write, that reminded me of the ubiquitous scallop shells you find sometimes at the foot of tombstones, symbolising the journey of the pilgrim !
God Bless
