Such pain, when you think of those small reminders of the one departed!

(Poetry from Crossing Streams . . . and then pondering, by Priya Dubey Sah)

Chasing the setting blue moon in August, I was startled to come across this memorial alongside a nearly deserted county road in Idaho.

Drew Joseph Meader, 18, lost control of his pickup shortly after midnight the morning of September 12, 2009. Investigators cited speed and alcohol as factors in the crash. Drew was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the vehicle. A passerby reported the accident at 8:30 that morning.

A young life, the promise of things to come, all stopped dead, leaving such pain—such love.
