Today’s poem was prompted by The Sunday Whirl. The words in italics came from that site. You should try the wordle there if you are in need of a challenge.
Fierce warriors, on
Remote rugged hills where cows
Graze almost silent,
Are shaken by suffering
Which ignores awesome splendor.
Great marble halls show
The grace and blessing they live
But times are rough for soldiers
Who must fight for our freedom.
Many mighty men
Have fallen on battlefields
Far from the comforts
To which they are accustomed
To enjoying in their homes.
We must remember
The sacrifices made by
And honor their bravery
With fond thoughts and many prayers.
In the deep silence
Of our most sacred inner
Hearts we should always
Be grateful for those who choose
To uphold our liberty.

I am grateful:
1. I decided not to try going to church.
2. I found my art quality pencils.
3. I found my copy holder.
4. I found my in-line skates.
5. I think I may have found a new groomer.
I hope you had a fantastic Sunday. My day was a bit of a challenge and I am getting this done very late. I hope you have already taken time to exercise your creativity. If not, I encourage you to do it now. There is no time to engage your imagination, like the present time. You past is gone, and you never know what the future may hold, so get busy.
