THROWBACK FRIDAY: Death is Patient

Found in an old cemetery while touring Boston in the winter 2018

Boston Cemetery, Winter 2018

How do you feel about old?

Old tells stories
Old remembers
Old has lived
being old is blessed

How do you feel about wrinkles?

Wrinkles are my story
They map my journey
They show where I laughed
also my heart sorrows

How do you feel about death?

Life is ephemeral
Death is patient
Sand in an hourglass
while heaven waits
