The Ghosts of Battles Past #poetry #Veteran’sDay #tribute #photography #ghosts


“Forward men”

we heard the call

the plodding sound

a thousand boots

to bloodied ground fall

***

“March on”

boys cadenced

in a an old tin song

others called out

“how far how long?”

***

The days and nights

we felt their need

had barely food

no time

 urged upon speed

***

we hide away

while they must fight

sabers flash

 blue and grey

the colors clash

***

I hear your voice

through early day

sweet farewell plea

“mama I’m coming”

life dearly paid

***

They march on

those soldiers do

reverie’s ghosts

tho for these

the battle’s through

This poem is in Tribute on this Veteran’s Day to the boys who fought in the many wars including the war between the states. We see their ghosts in the battle field mist – still…

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

    1. It is my privilege and honor to have spekon to Andy and planned a collaborative project with him and his friends. In a very short time I came to feel a brotherly love with Andy that was rare and special. I was so excited and blessed when Andy called me to talk about my business. I knew very little about his story or life, but I knew his spirit and his energy. We became instant partners on a great project. We did not complete our project, but Andy’s impact on me was more than ordinary. I have come to know a spirit that affirms angels and trusts intuition and godly connections. A spirit of brotherly love and sharing of yourself to help others. A spirit of happiness and cooperative creativity. A spirit of being together with uplifting intentions. A loving spirit who gave respect and trust along with a most positive outlook and enthusiastic manner. A spirit of leadership and caring for family and friends. A creative spirit that will continue to bless us all the rest of our lives here on earth. A strong spirit who will not be forgotten. A spirit whose legacy is an honor to tell others of; whose legacy is an inspiration on many levels. Thank you Andy, for your especially loving and creative spirit and for all you will continue to give us as we continue on our spiritual journey.
