Haiku – 3 Looks at Carry

Amusement park closed

Daddy carries his daughter

Passed out in his arms


A boat on the sea

Waves carry the brave sailor

Forward towards home


Through the fire and flames

One by one he carried them

No man left behind

I kept hearing these songs when I wrote this.

I thought I would share.


Haiku – 3 Looks at Mend

Young wounded soldier

Nurse tends to his many wounds

Hearts fill up with love


Mom comforts her child

Mending a small tiny cut

Causing lots of tears


Two angry brothers

Hatred spewed throughout the years

Now mending their bonds

Poem – Soldier

What is it like?

To lay your body down.

To spill your blood and life.

Upon the Earthly Ground.

A special thank you to all soldiers and veterans on this day.  Your bravery is appreciated.

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of May.[1] Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.[2] Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service[3]. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.
