Respect. Reflect. Remember. D-Day, June 6, 1944.

 No Day at the Beach © 2012, Karla Dorman 

The salt sea air puffs up from the sand,
inhaled by nostrils of long ago memory:
of blood, sweat and tears mingled with
the sound of gulls. Or was it men, 
crying out, 'I'm hit, I'm hit?' Hard to
tell. Pain and regret returns on the
waves, then slowly drifts away as the
Veteran remembers another beach.

Heart-aching, Karla! Seems Nature mirrors human miseries more than Man.. Gulls crying, loons wailing, owls hooting who and where? Sad piece, yet, so compassionate. Love 'inhaled by nostrils of long ago memory'. An exquisite phrase..

Karla,the blood of men young and some not so young mingled with the water of the Atlantic that day - my uncle was there - he was one of the fortunate to return home after the horrors of many WWII bloody campaigns - I cannot begin to imagine the depth of the horror they faced - your reminder should help to make the events of that place on that day endure in the gratitude of all Americans - I wish you love and peace my dear friend - Jon Michael

A day to remember as one of the most difficult ever undertaken by the forces of freedom. What men faced on that day, I can only imagine. Thanks for remembering and sharing with us.
