A Soldier's Life

Bully boys all

I took the Bristish steel On Bunker Hill. I sent grape shot On Lake Erie.  I fixed bayonets  On Little Round Top. I felt the knife At Greasy Grass. I moved up the hill Bully Boys all. I bled red Feeding poppy fields.  I swatted mosquitoes On the deck of Yorktown. I froze white At the reservoir. I rode a green horse Over the lush jungle. I drove though The hot sandbox.

Memories

Morning Mist burning off Soulful sound of  loons in the distance. Two young friends, about to find love. Oars in the water, making ripples to the shore. Her brown eyes so bright, bouncing off the water. Water splashing her arms, balled up fists. As you laugh, your heart melts. Two friends, on their lake. Now two lovers, finding themselves. Falling madly in love.  ...Read On

Land of Milk and Honey

In the Land of Milk and Honey.

Across the tracks, dusty homes line the streets. Zoey the ally cat, soaking up the July sun. Watching the fat robins, fly from fence to trees.   Day by day, turns to years. Scratch and scrap, scrape and scratch. Turning nickles to dimes. Old Glory waving, in the early morning. Gold star hanging. faded in the front window.   Old lonely Hank. bented shuffles off to work.

On the frontier

Sturdy Jake harnessed

I packed my kilt away. Hung my trusty bess, on the wall. Drank deep from the well. Sturdy Jake harnessed, Joe, loyal Joe by my side. Thirty acres wait. Wheat to wave in the wind, Corn to give cover. Work to be done, on God's beautiful earth.   ...Read On

Drifts

Sleet hitting the windows, nothing stirring. Drifts of white powder, blanket your door. Your heart heavy, thoughts of what ifs. Close your eyes, quiet so deafening.

Waiting

Waiting for you, at our river spot. Under the wintery moon, to the hoots of snow owls. Stars so bright, to guide my way. Down to our special place, where I stole my first kiss. My heart burns hot, to touch you. And hold you tight, just once more. My lips turning blue, as ice forms. Wading in deeper, not waiting. Calling your name.                  ...Read On

you are my disease with no cure

You are my disease, with no cure. A  Kansas flower, blooming in the sun. Wisps of vapors across July skies. Rarity of a Mexicali  emerald.  Lonely wolf, telling his story.

Flanders

We lived and died on Flanders fields.

Sun-dried mud on youthful faces. Waiting for the shrill sound of whistles. Rolling thunder, foot by foot. Sending earth tossed to heaven. Drips of crimson foam splash mates, along the trench lines. Orders barked with the shrill whistles. "Over the top boys!" Being met with rat a tat from the bloody Hun guns. O what a grand sight as the Black Watch moved. Once more the youth of...Read On

Angels

On bowed knee, eyes raised to the heavens. Heart deeply filled, with love and respect Searching darken skies, for glimpses of angels. One’s heart softens, due to love in one’s heart. Invisible walls crumble, to the sound of singing angels. Returning to the abbey, filled with knowing. Love brought by, angels in darken skies.   ...Read On

There is something haunting, of a full October moon. The lonely howl of a cur, deep on the moors. Leaves blowing helter, making skelter designs. Waxy eyes thirsty, for Autumn final fling.

Clock strikes midnight, for the witching hour is upon us.   B O O...Read On

back when times were slow

You came into my life. Taking a piece of my heart. Back when times were slower. Lazy days chasing butterflies. Quiet nights watching fireflies. Summer days standing in waving wheat.

Two young lovers. ...Read On

The morning sun rises, In the horizon. Sit by the window, Looking outside. Birds chirping happy songs. Thinking if she is awake.   Images of her stretching, lazily in bed.

Humming as she gets ready. ...Read On
