Surviving

Feeling the warmth of the sun on a cloudy day. A glimpse into a blind billy goat's unique, ever changing perspectives.

2017 05 29 Poetry: Memorial Day May 29, 2017

It is very evident to me that I will never be able to describe the moments that Memorial Day brings. On this day, this Memorial Day 2017, I have only a poem that I’d like to share with you.
Happy Memorial Day to you all, and God bless.
Deon

Memorial Day

Memories flow through the lines of heavy pounding hearts
Wondering, wishing, wading for the sun to move through the day
Pictures of yesterday’s voices gather along the shelves
Faces of a May morning raise their heads, searching through the past

Lonely, sweet tones recollect the colors of the departed
Reflections of loving smiles cling tightly to yesterday’s song
Rows of medals, pinned with pride, dance about in the morning light
With gathered steps of spring, the parades take shape

Waving flags beside the children’s smiles help to carry the message home
Brilliant gaze from olden eyes reminds us how things have come to be
Sharp, precision steps, march side by side with a country’s pride
A single, lone trumpeter’s call bids the past a proud farewell

Beckoning words caress the crowd with chaptered verse, bound and true
Petals of red and lilies white paint the fields of carved stone
Circling whispers of love ease down upon the morn
Memorial Day, Oh Memorial Day, we shall always remember you
