Fair Dinkum Haiku 049: Graveyard.


Stark Graveyard meadow.
Enclosed by wrought iron fence.
Weed filled hillocks encompass.

Thank you. Though an old graveyard is often a thing of joy and beauty too.

Hi Windsmoke,
Well done. I saw a movie, can't remember the name of it, but it was based around a graveyard, that had a huge wrought iron gate as an entrance, inside the gate the graveyard was covered in very long grass, that was the first thing that came to mind when I read your post. :)

Yeah I agree with Elephant Child, down in Charleston, South Carolina short biographies are carved into many of the gravestones of people who lived back in colonial times, its fascinating.

A beauty.

I can picture it. A small lonely graveyard surrounded by a wrought iron fence, with rust and peeling paint, weathered headstones, some falling over, some just tilted, nothing but prairie for miles and miles.

Great imagery - I like how the words you've used can be either positive or negative, depending on how you choose to interpret them.

Have a great day!
