My Life, My Light, My Love: Photography by Mamie M. Lomax

“My work focuses on 19th and early to mid-20th century gravestones and other aspects of historic cemeteries. The silence is pleasantly deafening in the cemeteries that I have visited, and each has brought different inspiration to me. 106 more words

Castle in the Sand

when is it more important
to be wrong than to be right?
I ask so many questions
that never have answers
and instead I pull my words
like they are fortresses
before me in an effort
to conceal the final castle
that I thought someone
would one day try to take
when in reality it is failing
falling apart on its own
foundation cracked and nil
water no longer flowing
from the abandoned mill
the church spire is cracked
the paintings are melting
the gravestones all muted
all the names now erased
by time’s scraping fingers
and what does it matter
if it made a difference
when you know it was
so small that everyone
will never again look back
at what you have done
when the battle was won
but the war was lost.
