Memorial Day 

red paper poppies

small town parades

flags and gunned salutes

flowers at headstones

 

quiet lives of liberty

shades of autumn

footpaths glittered with gold

hints of heaven

Our summer may not be the Monet poppy field we dreamed of last winter as we longed for warmer weather. Rabbits and mosquitoes have a way of altering plans.

My new Summertime poem is now up at the Barn Door. Your comments over at the Barn Door are much appreciated.

Thanks for your support! ~Lori
