Flush of Vermilion – ANZAC

Poems, Writing

 

flush of vermilion
spatters
across a field
as trigger pulled
eagle soars
paced for the kill
rooted deep in the heart
of khaki soldier
courage sacrifice
innocence mateship

bounds his ashes
even at dusk.
gaunt figures
vermilion flushed
are ragdolls
smiling ghosts
who fought for
our freedom
will be ever alive
in our thoughts
lest we forget

Olivia, writing on a whim…
May we all remember them.

    1. Dear ‘Homepage’,
      Askimet marked this as spam, but I am happy to help. I do believe it might be your end of the blog or your computer. For other viewers, it works fine. Perhaps your computer does not have the capacity to load the gallery as it has many images in it.
