"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
