Untended Rose Growing Over An Unmarked Grave — CONTEMPLATE.

by Anura Guruge

An old, basically abandoned graveyard on a backroad. I found it during my walks.

This rose caught my eye. Went closer to take a picture. Noticed the white fence. But, that was IT. Nothing else. No headstone or marker.

The other graves were not nearby. And the the rose was in the middle. Must be a grave underneath & at some point somebody planted that ROSE.


This is life. This is death. Life goes on. Roses will continue to grow. The rose nurtured by what lays below.
