One smaller gravestone
speaks of hope and love, although
moss covers the name.
For haiku heights September challenge. The prompt is ‘divine’.
I love the grave stone still speaking even though moss covers the words. Fantastic haiku to really meditate on.
That last line is lovely…very nice ~
That’s a little bit sad, nice write
A lovely message of hope and love; life is remembered and precious. Nice connection to nature (moss) 🙂
I sense so much sadness and loneliness in this one. Well done, nevertheless! especially the last line.
This is without question my favorite of your haiku so far. It is so beautiful and poignant. I could see a whole story flowing from these few words
Thanks – I spent a whole day (on and off!) thinking about a completely different take on the prompt, and then this came to me right as I was about to commit to a final version…
A lovely haiku that speaks to many emotions. I, too, like the last line.
Sometimes, when I walk on a graveyard … the stones are speaking to me. In a deep voice … it must be the voice of God … great take on divine.
Sadness, loneliness, hope and love for mankind all rolled in these few wonderful words. Very well written.
Moss covers the name’ speaks volumes of the transient nature of our identity and the fallacy of clinging to it. Great haiku.
Lovely. Nicely done.
Neither time nor death stops the hope I think. Well said.
Awesome direction and story within constraints of 17 syllables … your words lend to a poignant history.
