Crimson Red

Poppies to Remember

Crimson Red

In a sea of red
How remnants bled
Mourn ye somber vale
Warriors align fiery trail
Steely drone’s flight
Bullets insurgent might
Fumes battlement fuel
Comes cataclysm duel
Notions spring to light
Brave twas a fight
For whom bells din
Death yields a grin
Memorials abloom
Embellish a soldier's tomb
Cherish another dawn
An effigy marks a valiance gone

I enjoyed this poem for the feelings it shares
and the picture it paints for our warriors.

Isn't it ironic how something so sad and from a dismal violent scene can appear so peaceful and beautiful in nature's way of honoring it?Β  We must never forget those who have lost their lives for freedom and protection of others....Such an ultimate sacrifice.Β  Well written, Lisa. xo ;)Β
