WAR WOUNDS

of men who go to war

 the rest of us who have never seen war

dare to expect those who have made it through

to return to norm when there is no longer any norm

 after a man has seen death

come near to being dead

there is no fitting back in

 no matter how old they get

patches of horror continues to inhabit their soul

day to day survival then becomes their new war

WARM SUMMER RAIN

 

flowers 2

Walking in the rain

warm summer raindrops

splishing my forehead

scampering to my eyes

plopping on my head

face tilted skyward

palms to follow suite

at natures urging

pausing for a twirl

outstretched arms

getting lingered stares

warm raindrops envy

truly filled the air
