Weekend Speckled white and ash
Contrast green and soldiers seen
In uniform past.

A candle on her favorite food
Lit on this her 10th year passing
I sit and wonder in the quiet moment
No birthday song to wish a lasting
Wishes for the future gone
As the days have passed quickly
And you are not here to belong
At this table of celebration
Yet it is for you and only you
Leaving loved ones with their own

Gray rustic canon
Hangs over winter’s river
Few could tell you why.
Many once gathered to fight
Forgotten, now a bleak sight .

Driving across country from Calf – NC with 130.00 will not be forgotten as long as this song can be played . 😊
For being my friend
Even if it had to end
Lives richly in our sharing

The sea whispers
Breath comes in and then out
In a distance it sweet roar
Crescendos in a swell
Of soft breeze travels through
I feel tranquilizing sleep
We try to linger in the unknown
We are just too human
So I fall asleep with feelings

It felt as if eternity stopped in one day.
Everyone’s eyes were swollen from tears.
No one was talking, just listening, just praying.
A feeling of loss, and not knowing why.
A prayer for those you could not call.
Confusion as to what to do next.
You wait, you wait to hear, to hope,
To pray… 9/11 a day of eternity.

Twilight crest after
midnight storm gives way to verdant
grass, and hope appears …

Walk free among verdant grass
Present will be past
