It's lovely, even though a bit somber. The boom -- makes one wonder if it's thunder or really artillery. Add the effect of a kind of in-thought haze. Everyday, I make my way to work, I have to go by Lornie Road and they are already in the process of exhuming the old graves there. One day there may be no more such places.All the best on NaPoWriMo!
thanks, raven, for your thoughtful comments.yeah, even i found it a bit somber but that's the mood of the poem. the live firing range is just beyond the hills, the booms are evenly spaced, not random like thunder, so i am pretty sure it's military stuff. and yes,a haze would have completed the picture. :)old burial grounds make way for space for the living, that's a hard truth for a land-scarce country. :(all the best on your Napowrimo journey too! :)
all the best!cheers...
Gentle memories, well recorded!
