“The Act of Sorrowing”

Poulna brone Dolmen: 6000 year-old dolmen in The Burren, County Clare, Ireland     


Lamentations drift across the Burren   
echo through portals of eternity   
marking humanity’s mortality   
In the chamber, portico, and the grykes   
sleep the fleshless bones of ancient souls who   
give testimony to adversity   
in life, deference and honor in death
