Drove by a cemetery on my way home yesterday
This tree captured my attention so I stopped to see it up close
It is a memorial of sorts with all manner of happy remembrances, letters and photos
Loved ones pronouncing the past with exuberance
I suspect those in remembrance would be happy with the holiday cheer
Glitter and garland aren’t limited to pine trees indoors
Memory can affect us in a myriad of ways
These folks chose to think of happier times
Makes me wonder what am I making now
Angels of sorts perhaps
Joyful memories despite all of life’s struggles
Jesus making Christmas possible
Merry Christmas to all
A marvellous location and images, we have a similar place in Scotland where the rags that hand in the trees are dipped in the well to protect loved ones or cure children from awful illness a sight to behold – Happy New Year Michael
What a great tradition are your rags dipped and hung!
Happy New Year, as well.
May 2019 treat you and yours well.
Merry Christmas to you, too, Michael.
Same to you, Len, from overland, across the pond and near the Bosporus!
