“Returning Home”

You can see my selected photo here, on Richard Buchanan II’s portfolio site.

Clay skeletons

Stand at the burial

Of their eroded brothers

Winter’s blanket

Dimpled by earth and sun

Cleans away grief, not hope

If buildings stood here once before

They can stand here again

On the graves of their ancestors

Home may never be the same

But the next generation can always return

This poem was in response to Sunday’s writing prompt.
