from stone to stone : 53 project week 24

golden afternoon sun
graveyard steeped in history
birds keeping vigil
perched on lichen-covered stones
adorned with widow's weeds








 This little sparrow first alit on the stone

 and then appeared to be grieving the dead

  9. I have MISSED your photos and your posts. I visited a beautiful graveyard in Northern Ireland and found it such a peaceful place to be. That little sparrow gets it.
