Small Stone #18

Small Stone #18:

"Moving from the early morning light to the cool darkness under the freeway overpass, a flash of color catches my eye.  Closer I see the stark white cross surrounded by flowers pushing up from the rich earth.  Someone's days ended here in the spooky shadowed space beneath freeways.  Hearing the rush of cars above, I wonder if this is a recent passing, or have I somehow missed it in my focus on getting to work."

I know the feeling: how did I not notice this before, or: when did this appear?!

Saskia~ Makes one wonder, yes?!

we have so many of these along the roads. the sad part is that stop signs and traffic lights aren't installed until the accidents happen. enjoy reading your stones each day even though i don't always comment.
