The Cemetery above the Stream


We find cemeteries that keep on going

the beginning of one in Roscrea led us

to a stream and

we began to crawl over more and more hills.

The Celtic crosses reach to the sky

the stones buried a perimeter of the earth there

crushed gravel paths

small plants under cracked glass

with iron covers a perfect place to be buried

but a glorious place to be alive.
