Nestled among pines
‘Neath a shroud of fragrant leaves
Rest in peace good friend
Haiku Friday is hosted by Lou at LouCeeL.
Surrounding a small, rustic chapel in the woods, a pet cemetery spreads out under the pines. Handmade markers, bearing the names of beloved dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, turtles, pay homage to these animal companions. Dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi, the chapel is a quiet oasis to contemplate these short, but worthy lives.
Several friends have lost family pets recently. We are still mourning the death of our cherished Maxx. My heartfelt sympathies go out to these families for their loss.
