Day 119: Whispering Graves

Above: Southern Coast of Maui, La Perouse Bay

Whispering Graves

The graves of every lowly dale

The graves of every crowning peak

The graves of ancient burial

The graves of generations past

They all speak the same

They all whisper:  Live now

They all whisper: Love now

They all whisper: Don’t wait

They all whisper: Hurry

They all whisper and whisper again

Through winds of evermore

We only need listen

We only need follow

Until we too are but whispering graves

  1. The poem is okay. Not my favorite. But I felt like I had to honor the spirits in the photos with words. To give them purpose to be there, beyond just to look upon. I think I did that. Thanks for being the ever present David — power blogger always making an appearance. 🙂 Sam

  2. Yes, you picked up on my uncomfortable urgency I have to get out there and LIVE LIFE to the fullest. It was evident in the poem. Couldn’t get that feeling out of the words….sometimes my thoughts stick like glue to my creations. 🙂 Sam

  3. Great poem, you are right, life is for living and loving. Some people live and others simply exist. I love the music too.

Thank you for your comments :)
