  10. Some things don;t need to be told, but work better as memories, under that golden carpet. Lovely reflection of the picture.

  12. I hope I can always remember those three words: "memories in bloom" when I see graveyards.

  15. What a beautiful haiku and fits my photograph perfectly. If only we could hear the stories and know the memories scattered among the flowers. I took this picture in Galveston, Texas. Every year they let the yellow wildflowers bloom. It is really breath taking and makes me feel good to know that every grave gets a live bouquet.
