In a shadowy, rainy clime

Bereft of white

I suffer silently toward the coming time


Awaiting the birth of Christ


Of the long arrival of Peace on Earth


And Good Will toward Mankind


I curse the truce

24 hours short


Suffering a bone-bruising ache


Absent from dear mother

beloved father

brothers and sisters alike


O treasured dog; my steadfast friend


And as the drizzle

Marks the tears on my face


The only gift I assume


Is my life . . .

For yet one more day



395 and a Wake Up

hard...a hard pill to swallow
you done it well with class and a pure faith to do what you got to do and get home~~~~

"I curse the truce" -- That line hit like a hard slap, unexpected and all the more powerful because of that simple fact. I'm sure soldiers in our present day war, and in any war for that matter, could relate to such a moment.
