Guardians of the sacred dead

Grey sentinels of places beyond life

they stand

contemplating the past

and marking the processional way

for those who would observe the passing

of the seasons and the years

and remember what came before

Connection to the ancestors

Connection to the descendants

They are place-markers for history

Stand with the stones

observe their solitude

and with them, remember

the inevitability of time
