    __ First seen, heartful Memorial Kathryn, and we see these mementos from place to place; they grow our thoughtful care.
    __ Nearby, there is a -bicycle fork and its handlebars- posed on a roadside banktop. In standing there as its decorations proclaim, -it seems to be a cross- to the person that had passed riding that bicycle.

    time passes
    as its rust grows deeper
    love follows

    The first line and the fact this is a memorial to someone possibly killed by a drunk driver or certainly someone who might have driven away makes this doubly poignant.

    In a small town, such as the one that I come from, everyone knows the person for whom the bunch of roses are left on the road in and out of town. Poignant haiku.
