Remembering those who fought or died –
In the war from where –
My family and I had to flee –
And remembering those who fought or died –
In the wars for where –
My family and I could be free –
A sincere thank you from me

Notes to this poem…
Just a little Remembrance Day poem to summarize what was on my mind this morning.
And additional thank you to all those who continue to serve and protect so we all could live in a safer world.
The O-series of poems are one stanza poems composed before I got onto writing haiku and tanka, and short poetry while in action or traveling by select means like plane or ferry. These poems are 3-9 lines long with at least one rhyming couplet, and not of the short forms just mentioned. For the sake of elegance, I just called the collection One.
