May we ever build
Monuments in the knowledge
That they will succumb

  1. My husband, a builder, and I love working on our various homes we’ve established together. I plant amazing landscapes and gardens. Yet I know neither our homes nor our landscapes will last forever. All is temporal on this earth. Yet it doesn’t prevent me or us from continuing to improve our little patch of earth. Nice poem.


  2. Once this lesson is learned we can move on without pain.
