unexpected road
PicMonkey Collage beth
there’s no gps
no map
not an architect’s blueprint road design
there was just those who loved you
and this damn sign
there was no car
or showy tour bus
or any transportation mode
just our heavy hearts with you 
hanging at this crossroad
and so I started walking
began about dawn
gravel crunching beneath me
in misty haze moving on
gathering thoughts with wildflowers
Queen Anne’s lace along the way
to reach this tough place 
sit beneath this sign to say:
‘I miss you my friend, Beth!’
throw some rocks
shed some tears
lay down your wildflowers
and hold your memory more dear

Elizabeth Ann Tures
September 17, 1968 – September 16, 2010
