Memorial lost: a #writephoto #haibun (10/26/18)

stone-in-the-wood

 

 

Whose life, so memorialized, and then so forgotton? A moss-covered cross upon a lichen-stained pedestal, erected in a clearing of ancient oaks. The overcast sky piering between spindley branches says nothing. The thinning grass utters not a word.

 

Who could once be so beloved, then remembered no more?
