When Ghosts Beckon by Celia Turner

Poet Bio

Utter stillness of bodies graved,
buried in their best,
row upon row in symmetry
eternal in their rest.
Roadside relics, crosses
adorned with flowers,
marking final victory
of Reaper over hours.
Dearly departed
snatched swiftly
twisted coffins to be carted.

Bereft we remain,
tumble forward
water seeking level plane.
