For an Armistice Day booklet, published by Keith Murray, Aberdeen. November 2013

 

 

a figure stands

soldiered against the sky,

surveys the ground

he’s made

he’s lost

he’s dug such

small pieces of ground

 

back home                                       home ground

in his eyes,

mounds of drying soil

fill rooms with

dark suited dust,

back yards

remembered

 

looking up

a figure kisses palms

watches clouds gather,

enemies advancing

hearts on spears,

gaining such

small pieces of ground

 

a figure falls

foetal against the mud,

concentrates

into a comrades arms,

as light fades

he becomes just

another small piece of ground

I enjoyed reading your well-written poem about the soldiers. especially the verses a figure falls foetal against the mud, concentrates into a comrades arms, it describes the scenery in full
and complete descriptive details. Have A Great Day.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 11/5/2013
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Much of the earth's ground is made up of dead soldiers.

Will armistice ever really gain the day?

Ron
