Photos of Flanders Field, Belgium
in Recognition of Veterans Day
Remembering November 11, Veterans' Day (Armistice Day) I have posted a few photos that I took at Flanders Field Military Cemetery, Belgium, in 2014. For full affect, I suggest you double click on each photo so that you can read the words. Many of us are undoubtedly familiar with the very famous poem "In Flanders Field" by John McCrae. It is a very moving poem if you have not read it in a while.
Thanks to those of you who participated in Midweek Motif where Sumana presented the theme "Silence." As I think about it now, the idea of silence goes along with the photos above as well....thinking about the silence of such cemeteries as the one above.
Rosemary posted a really fine poem for I Wish I'd Written This. It is "Surge et Carpe Diem" by Joseph Hesch. I found the poet to be an interesting person & I liked his philosophy of writing! Take a look back if you haven't read this feature.
On Monday Sherry will be featuring three prolific poets and their poems. I think you will enjoy them greatly. No hints as to who these poets are, but they will be familiar names to you! Smiles.
Wednesday Susan's prompt is "Meteor Showers" for Midweek Motif. Plan ahead!
With no delay let's share poetry. Link your one poem below. Visit the poems of others who link. Come back on and off to see who else has posted. Looking forward to seeing you on the trail!
