Red

Red
Swathes in fields
Too many

Black and white
The headlines
That sowed the seed

Grey
The problems
The ethics
The guns

Yellow
the gas
and the memories

Red
Remembrance
and ledger

In Remembrance

in-remembrance-11300115244nlu

I am deeply honoured that poem of mine – topical for today – has been featured on the Thanet writers website.

It was originally written for Armistice day – then later a friend and I adapted it as a song and this is the version they have featured.

While we are remembering – we also said goodbye to some more legends today. Robert Vaughn – the Man From Uncle, and also one of my favourite all time singer/songwriters – Leonard Cohen.

 

This is my favourite – and with apt lyrics for today.

Poppies

Time for the flowers to bloom again
Red
Like blood
That was shed
A century ago
And every day since
One day
They will be white
