In Memory

Dale offers the theme “in memory” for this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge which coincides with the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

I selected views of two graveyards.

The military graveyard is well maintained. The goat (or whatever it is) in the other one, off to the left side on the rocks, keeps the vegetation under control.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. I am definitely with the photo that includes the goat. The gravestones tell of individual lives (or at least family lives), all different, all ready to tell a story. The military stones just show rows and rows of identical stones, like soldiers in a row, sacrificed for ideas which might or might not stand the test of time. And the eeriest thought of all: standing there and preparing the ground for the next generation. (it kind of ties in with my cosphochal contribution today)

  2. I have no idea what that animal is….

    Where I live, there must be at least a dozen family graveyards that existed before all the development that has gone on here. You’ll be driving along and suddenly there’ll be an outcropping of headstones. There’s even one in the middle of a strip mall not far from here…
