Lest we forget ...
It's a deep, dark November in
my soul, even though the sun
is shining. The wind sniffs
around my shoulders, seeking
a way into the marrow, chilling
me to the bone. You should
be standing tall at my side ----
instead, I lay tear dampened
poppies at your feet. Damn
this war. Your name chiseled
on a headstone is not the
legacy you wanted to pass on
to our son ---- but it is one
I'll make sure he won't forget.
(c) 2010, Karla Dorman (11/5)
