A Poet's Vision and Memorial Day/Decoration Day
Thursday, May 24, 2018

Riddle of the Present

I move between two worlds!
Yesterday I created myths about the stars;
I am evolution's missing link;
Tomorrow I will colonize Mars.

Poet's Note:

The "Blog City ~ Every Blogger's Paradise prompt for Day 1619
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present. Write anything you want about this.

A Poet's Vision

A poet's vision
penetrates the mist of time,
the fog of history,
and the Stygian darkness of interstellar space,
to creatively interrupt the events
of past,
present,
and future.

The "Blogging Circle of Friends prompt for DAY 2016

Is it a 3 day weekend to you or do you have special events recognizing the lives lost? Share with us about traditions in your family on this weekend. If you live outside the U.S. what are you countries traditions for recognizing fallen soldiers or deceased loved ones?

Memorial Day
Decoration Day

My grandparents called it Decoration Day,
and, every year,
Grandma would make crepe paper flowers
to put on the graves of the honored dead.

Every year,
on Memorial Day weekend,
Grandpa would take us
to graveyards
across two or three states
to place the flowers
on the graves of the honored dead.
