Poem

.

It started out with kisses

quickly escalated to an altercation

toe to toe

face to face

the screaming

the yelling

inferences to the animal donkey

naming family who resembled the monkey

I can’t remember who threw the vase

if only I hadn’t said

kiss my ass

the rhythm

the earth speaks

mother nature waxes poetic

Haiku:

rainbows perfect arc

leading to the pot of gold

puddles and flowers

Poem:

.

thank you soldier

I live a life or ease

with epaulets upon your shoulder

my freedom is your guarantee

.

from the American Revolution

to today’s police action

you defend the Constitution

democracy your sanction

.

only one day a year we celebrate you

that effort certainly pales compared to what you do

today we thank you on our blog

hoping it will become an eternal epilogue

.

Thanks to all who sacrificed and all who serve.
