unearthing s

bare shadows of bones:
time has silenced their relics
of resurrection

A couple of weeks ago a news story about the discovery of graves from the colony of Jamestown included photos of the bones as they had been excavated and a also a Roman Catholic reliquary, seemingly at odds with the Anglican Church burial site.  And they were able to identify the bodies!  Both mysterious and suggestive.

Jennifer at Graceful Press Poetry also recorded her reaction to the news in verse:  https://wordpress.com/read/post/id/20906156/1299
