Carpe Diem #555, Cemetery

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

I am a bit late with publishing this post, because I haven't had time to create it earlier today. This will not be a long post. As you all know we have modern kigo for prompt this month all based on "A Dicitonary of Haiku" by Jane Reichhold and today our prompt is cemetery. Here are Jane's examples for haiku about cemetery:

sleeping peacefully
the Best Western Motel
by the cemetery

grave marker
as a cradle headboard
rest in peace
abandoned cemetery
iron keys cross the ground
no one going in
