Seraph

The wonderful photographs below are courtesy of my friend and favorite sax man, James Rinalducci.  Please take a moment to click on the link to hear his music.  James lives in Savannah GA, my favorite southern city. He recently took some photos during a visit to Bonaventure Cemetery, one of the most eerily beautiful places in the world. Thank you James, for the inspiration.

Photographs courtesy of James Rinalducci
behind spanish moss mantilla
head bowed, acceptance
a Bonaventure angel
face stained with
burden of tears
lifted from weary souls

ensconced in southern heat
cold facade lit from within
alabastrine fingers
drip moon-drenched lilies
gifts to the lost
lanterns by which
they may find their way home
