This was written in loving memory of my stepdad, David Jerome Moore ("Rome" to his family and friends), who passed away November 23, 2001.


A fine suit


of blood and sweat


to hell and back


and overseas


seen the world


in mud dirt and rain


from treetop cradle


and foreign fox holes


the big picture he has seen


nothing fazes him


Veteran


of the earth


firm bed clean linens


shelter heat indoor plumbing


the basic needs


he did treasure


what we all take


for granted

I love the concision of the bits of imagery that form a complex, beautiful tribute.

Wonderful word associations.

Sincerely,
