My best friend's grandfather was found in a cornfield today.  

28 days of praying, of searching, of remembering.

His small body reunited with the earth.

Kind neighbors and unmet friends offering hope.

The corn standing guard, like tall sentinels.

The earth takes back its own.

This is sublime. Thank you for the tribute and for supporting me during this horrific month.

beautiful. truly lovely.
but so sad.
I wonder, was he lost...just wandered off?
or met some other demise?

so tragic.
and yet a very peaceful conclusion.

Beautifully said for something so tragic. My thoughts are with Luann and her family at this time of healing.
