Rooted to Promises

The beautiful photographic art of Deborah Glessner ~ Lark Photography

He said he would never leave…
so I buried him beneath the oak
where roots would pierce his heart
to keep him bound to promises.

That is really clever how that photo was done. Great verse today, reminds me of a green burial site I visited last week

About the only way to get a dude to keep his commitments! Not sure we're good fertilizer for anything but resentments.

This reminds me of the book Gone Girl!
