Rock of Ages: Grave Concerns

graveyards, gravestones, photography and family

Amidst Nature’s Splendor

In all their glory, our cemeteries are groomed gardens of stone
Tranquil galleries of granite amidst nature’s splendor
Serene libraries of limestone proud to display
The craftsmanship of the skilled artisans that carved them.
Well-worn paths wind through these outdoor memorials
Opening different chapters to times long before
Standing among the regimented rows of our military’s fallen
Or the modest menageries of our earliest pioneers.
Alone, each piece is a testament of personal achievement, sacrifice, devotion and pride
But together, it becomes overwhelmingly tangible
As we become the latest part of its history.
