31 Poems in 31 Days - Day 4. Place - Tiny stones on granite

Tiny stones on granite

Atop the ebon granite
sit small stones
fresh picked from
paths through the
fresh mowed grass
small stones as tiny
sentinels stand atop
the incomprehensibility
of your name - your name
in black granite - cut in large block letters


dedicated to my father on this Yom Kippur eve 


  1. I could have included it in my Yizkor... This truly captures the incomrehensible...

  2. That's a really powerful ending! Nicely done :-)

  3. Thank you so very much Nurit and Sara - so very much appreciated :)
