Grandfathers Grave

by MorkAlg

Age Group: Adult

This ground speaks if only you'll listen
From the bones cry a voice across the distance
It is not the cold stone that leaves a mark
But the memories of this ever living heart
Sit with me here under apple blooms
Close your eyes and string your loom
For we are weaving tapestries out of golden silk
That nurture our souls as mothers milk
Yes this is a grave and a place of rest
Yet there still ring songs from the dead mans breast
Songs that see things lost in our fog
And speak of a dream in a fire lit hall
Through ageless spans of the worlds I hear
What was once so muddled now seems clear
Then the ground, comes abruptly back
I lay once more upon cool grass
The sun so brightly through apple leaves shines
It seems alien here away from my line
Though a message resounds, I brought it back
And its song will ward me from all the black
Now what did you see on your wayward journey?
Who spoke to you as you sat there with worry?
Perhaps one day you will find the courage
To tell me, why you go there so discouraged
Does the ground sing to you like it sings to me?
How I wonder indeed what it is there you see

Author's Notes: I go often to the grave of my grandfather and read, think, meditate, what have you. It is a place for me to feel grounded and connected to my ancestral line. It has also become special to me because I recently began sharing it with the love of my life.

Sadly, my situation with her is incredibly complicated right now and we are not seeing eachother. Yet I found out today that she was there at his grave... literally minutes from me leaving.

It means something to her too it appears.
