Sad and haunting. We do honor those that serve our country.
Rob -- The number of caskets are increasing, sadly. Hope we don't eventually become desensitized to the folly of wars and the loss of lives.
the fall of the heroes...:)they departed untimely, too!!great are the messages of your haiku....good morning:)
strong haiku, carlos
Superbly written - heartbreakingly true.
This haiku leaves me a two visions - one of fall - as in autumn, of trees losing their leaves, trees used for coffins, and of the fallen, as in soldiers. Excellent work!
Jukota -- It's uncanny...you saw what I saw. Thanks for sharing.
Nana, Amity, Emma, and Tumblewords -- thank you all for your kind words. And for visiting.
Sadly, this happens. Just watched Taking Chance, and the combined thought of the movie and your poem stopped my heart for a moment.
