Graveyards are expected to be quiet, somewhere to pay respects. This hillside in Heptonstall mostly achieves that. A bench gives a view of headstones in lines. The grass has not been cut but some individual graves are tended. A light breeze counters the humidity. There's no map of names. One has a burst of speedwell, fidelity, where bees gather nectar. Even her death is busy with life. --- Emma Lee’s recent collection is “Ghosts in the Desert” (IDP, UK 2015). “The Significance of a Dress” is forthcoming from Arachne (UK).
