The work is nice and balanced. There is a certain lack of emotion in the middle but I didn't find it that disturbing. Why? The writing was believable. I could imagine a person doing so, moving the grass, trying to locate the grave. Plus, too many works go on to reminiscing and making people cry so as I said before - this was balanced. However, I DO feel that after you finally found the grave, there should be a slight addition to what you felt or at least a little more than just recalling the name you called him by. It feels like you quickly moved from the grave - even adding something like expecting sorrow to take over, yet wondering why it isn't, wondering if it is wrong for him to stand there and not weep - adding something like that may make it better in my opinion.
The ending however was well worded (with the only issue that he suddenly felt very fear yet it stated as if he was fearful all along - sorry if that is hard to explain). The ending lines described a beautiful moment.
Congratulations on the DD!
Two things, one of them mostly just a question: "Dzia" is Polish for "grandfather"? I think you've got enough context clues in there; I've just never encountered it before. And the "mausoleum" standing guard. (Stupid French words and their stupid extraneous vowels. )
(Glad you mentioned mausoleum.)
So many graves are flush to the ground now, it would take a guide to find several of my deceased friends. But they like r.i.p. in another US state, so I rarely think of them. But dreams? Yes, I dream of them very often, and it carries through the day. Halatia did a great job writing how lots of people feel when faced with mortality and loss. It seems every one of the five senses is used. Or maybe not.
Do you still want a new title?
Maybe: The Flat Stones, The Older Cemetery, On the Other Side, I Miss Him, Falling --and that's all I think of now.
