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.

Contemplate.

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

As far as I can see (and usually I can see pretty far given my $3,000 bionic contact lens in my right-eye) Google has only ever done one (1) Robert/Robbie Burns doodle and that was for his birthday, January 25, in 2011.
Seems incongruous. Would appear that there had to be multiple chances to honor this great Scot, though, as the Scots will gladly and correctly point out, they don’t have a shortage of Great Men. My Scottish mentor was beyond proud of his heritage. Given we were in ‘telecom’ (as he would say), he would love to start all meetings and presentations with the question: ‘Where did the inventors of the phone, fax and television come from?‘ That said, I still think the greatest Scottish invention, not counting Scotch, Haggis and the Pipes, is Velcro — now a great NH company. I once flew to Albufeira, Portugal, for a gala ITT Sales Junket. There was about 30 of us from ITT on the plane (and it was the good job that that plane stayed afloat). The rest of the 60 or 70 passengers were tourists. So, Ian, that was his name, BIG Ian Williams, would waddle up and down the aisle (Ian, though a sportsman of great note and a lady’s man, par excellence, was huge) asking folks: ‘Can you think of ANYTHING that has been invented by a Portuguese?
