Dusk at the Cemetery

Drustvar crows tree Sauna

It was dusk when my horse and I came upon

two crows perched on a hillside tree, crows

staring down at the cemetery below, as if

waiting for the resident ghosts to arise.


The windswept tree beckoned me to rest on

the bench beneath its boughs and wait, too,

for darkness to descend; but I, with ample

ghosts of my own, hied my horse along.


This scene is in Drustvar, a large island of the Kul’tiras cluster, a zone that has an ominous feel overall, parts of which seem to be in perennial dusk. I was herbing that day, hoping to find the elusive anchor weed. I found none, alas, but did return to my home base in Zuldazar with over 100 other herbs and this screenshot. I didn’t see a ghost there, but doubtless many players have suddenly found their ghostly selves in this graveyard – and chances are I will too one day and, like those before me, scramble back to my corpse for resurrection.

About Lotus Greene

I started the blog called "Educating Lotus" in 2011, shortly after I began exploring the virtual world Second Life. With friends I met there, I migrated my virtual life to World of Warcraft (WoW) and joined an educators' guild. Lotus Greene is my gamer name, one I kept when I started another blog in 2015 called "Not Quite Ignored," which originally focused on the lighter side of news and now also includes political news and opinions.
