VETERAN'S DAY

fading sunset-
he fingers the Purple Heart
over his feeble heart

The sunset - both the reality of the time of day and his lifespan.

Touching.

Thank you all very much. Lately, I have been rummaging my desk and drawers for copies of drafts of poems scattered all over in pieces of paper, notebooks, even at the backs of receipts. Been going over each of these found poems to save and revise some and the rest thrown away. This veteran poem is one worth saving...

Keep 'em coming, Vic! I think we all do the same thing, writing on any and all available scraps.
