Walking Among Tombstones

fields of tombstones standing in silent watch

appearing as a living breathing entity

it’s about death,

but of course, life gives death meaning

the sublime beauty of repeating imagery

stretching to infinity

yet I’m lost in my own finite world

silence lingers in the air as the dust settles

why are we here, do we exist?

as I gaze ahead, I ponder what I leave behind

what dust of me remains, if even

but yet, here I stand with the remains

 still alive
