Today is Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub. Bjorn has given us the prompt word of “breeze”. We are to write a poem of 44 words – no more, no less, title not included and use the prompt word in the body of the poem. Come visit and join in the fun. Read some great poems and at 44 words a pop, they won’t take much of your time! Who knows, you may find you like poetry after all! Happy Memorial Day to you. Thank you to all our veterans and to those currently serving and their families. Remember those who died so you could have to the right to your own opinion and freedom to voice it. It will be my privilege to be one of the volunteers to place flags upon the graves of a local military cemetery this Memorial Day.
Memorial Day 2016
Smooth grass beneath a peaceful sky.
clouds drift and sometimes
the song of a bird breaks the silence.
Shadows deepen, the sun sinks low.
Soft breezes cause the flags in front
of the too many stones to flutter.
Be at rest, work is done.
