Two memorials

Poppies and memorial-Stitched-04

Poppies of France:
Bright as the blood
that was spilled here
decades ago.
Persistent as the thoughts
of family and home
that made heroes
of unbrave men.
Humble as those
who obeyed orders,
perhaps knowing
they would never be
successfully executed.
Bloom on…
as a testament
of courage
remembered.
Bloom on…
as a gratitude
for freedom
earned.
Bloom on…
in the name
of those who
gave their all.
