To walk among ruins

Thank you Leonard, for your poem, as it made this one appear for me……


To walk among ruins

To walk among ruins is to realise the fragility of life
To connect with those who came before
To observe commonalities
To puzzle at differences
To marvel at ingenuity
To hear their voices echoed in stones that have stood for thousands of years
Inevitably, to misunderstand the message
