Spirit of Stones

One by one each stone etched with dates along with names unknown to me, all have passed long before my arrival in the Necropolis Cemetery. In the age of passing and in this moment of quiet you can almost feel or imagine spirits of the past who spent their time quietly remembering the soul whose name is permanently marked in their honour. Given the dates of some of these stones one can only imagine that a person who stood here once has since moved onto to join the names and memories that line this path.
