    I’d always associated carnations with weddings and school dances until today .. interesting image a cemetery full of carnations!

    Timely subject for Haiku and carnations — you did it well with the direction 😀

    Very nice. I know many associate them with death.

  8. Very nicely written Mark … that would be an awesome sight if on all graves there would be vases of Carnations.
