Renhai Reflections: A Measure


A Measure

A Renhai by Vaughn Seward (vs) & Janice Thomson (jt)

Veterans chat
outside the grocery store —
boxes of poppies. /jt

A cluster of large mushrooms — /vs
the World War ll movie ends. /jt

Military funeral —
the General's badges hang
a little heavier. /vs

Between the lines I find the spirit of marching boots and drums - without any romantic idea but the knowledge of what had happened, happens and will happen. Good one.

Best wishes

This was also too interesting for the astute observation in the third...that i haven't noticed it ever, makes it all the more :)

again, love the veterans chat beside poppies,

** that i haven't noticed it ever, makes it all the more :)

I know I am not seeing the same general...but the haiku had a universal appeal to it :)
