Snapthought: Stone Walls

forgotten boundaries
crumble at our feet
what could have been
important enough
for a wall to be built
and fitted into place
stone by heavy stone
what caused the wall
only the trees can tell

  1. Reminds me of when I used to walk thru the woods of Northboro and Hubbardston and see a random stone wall and wonder “why”? Must have been important to someone………

    • Thanks Sarah! With 240,000 miles of stone walls, it’s no wonder we keep running into them. That’s a lot of backbreaking work. Maybe sitting at a computer isn’t so bad.
