We Lived

Lived for the moment
Rabbits keep paths by our graves
Who will remember?



Some historians have marked
Famous or infamous we

Isn't this the truth. I doubt there will be a rabbit path by my resting place. I have battled so to keep them out of my garden they will not care a mote to pass by when I am gone.

Hopefully, if we've lived a good life, there will be a few who will remember and walk by our graves - apart from the rabbits of course :)

Short but powerful, a good reminder of what life is about - the moments.

I like the idea of rabbits more than historians, Jim. A very good write.

What a fitting tribute to those who have passed away Jim. Beautiful use of nature as well.

I am particularly drawn to your image and your brief and powerful poem. I recently spent an afternoon wandering and photographing in a rural West Virginia cemetery with markers dating back several centuries. I conjured so many stories in my mind!

I was photographing a cemetery once and a dog was ... marking and "remembering" in his own way an old grave. I didn't take the photograph as I thought it disrespectful... but it gave me plenty of food for thought. Somehow, I prefer the image of little bunnies hopping over my grave :)

One never knows what surprises a graveyard offers! Nicely Dr Jim!
