Five stone steps between
two houses

a monument
to friends who have flown

(first publication)

“Unearthed” added to Poems, Slightly Used.

This one is cryptic William, but resonant. Your words always create images in my mind, especially those 'five stone steps'.

Thanks, Elisabeth. A great many of these little poems are like journal entries. In this case, the five steps are ones we uncovered the other day after removing some old junipers between our house and the neighbor’s. Apparently the people who lived here before we did got along quite well.... and so we will keep the steps where they are as a reminder.
