Memorial Day 

red paper poppies

small town parades

flags and gunned salutes

flowers at headstones

 

quiet lives of liberty

 Haiku 16

shades of autumn

footpaths glittered with gold

hints of heaven

In addition, my short ekphrastic Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Russell poem is posted at the Barn Door today. Your comments there are much appreciated. Thank you for reading.

note: both poems, now modified, first appeared in 2012.
