Church yard

The silent congregation
of decimated graves
surround an ancient building
that remains unweathered
though emptied of purpose,
like a drained chalice;
interesting to look at,
yet merely a container
without contents.
But it is ok,
don't weep for the building,
there's people outside this church yard.

Written 13th July 2012.
