Driving through the green woods
she stopped and saw what she called,
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
I do so love to walk among the titles of lives that were lived.
God smiling down,

And she said,
"No one is there
they are all with God.
The bodies are shells,
the souls are with God."

and see who has left
about the "Holy Stones"
that pepper our lives.
She is so wise.
