light morning frost
fills the old footprints
in the concrete walk

    So much embedded here --
    memories, a sense of timelessness...
    and a lovely remembrance for Nov. 11.


    morning sun
    faint columns of mist rise
    from the headstones

    covered with concrete
    the old shoes in the corner ...
    time adds wrinkles

    touching!

    on the path we met
    leaves twirl
    as if in joy

    silence
    late night, humidity --
    where it was raining earlier
