Thought and memory
Quest among the grateful dead
Pick over cold bones
Seek amid the detritus
Tomorrow’s understanding

For Frank J. Tassone’s challenge

    I like this one – I am currently sorting through piles of detritus (which includes old bleached bones from a tiny bird that I found in the sand dunes). Meanings and understandings are slowly emerging.
