Surreptitious Shadows

Shadows at day's end, Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona

Stealing through the graveyard
Surreptitiously,
Shadows 'mid the tombstones
Sadder than the sea.

What a beautiful cemetery. What's remarkable (aside from the dramatic lighting offered by the time of day) is that all the headstones are the same.
Nice shot! Nice prose (as always).

What is sad is when no one comes to visit or remember them.

Beautiful sad lilt in your poem complementing the atmospheric shadows in the photo.

The gravestone shadows are like dark ghosts.

Eine traurig Athmosphäre, aber ein
eindrucksvolles Bild.
Einen schönen Sonntag

Heartbreaking scene but this is the reality.

Beautiful solemn graveyard.

Happy SSS2.

Head stones do cast some nice shadows. I've done a few of them myself. Nicely done and thanks for sharing! :)

Somehow that does seem so sad. I usually don't think of cemeteries as a sad place, but maybe it's the lack of lush green grass.
