A short poem I wrote in honor of Memorial Day. Regardless of how much I disagree with war, and the pain and death that it causes, I can never disregard the men who sacrificed their lives for their belief in this country, that I live in today.
I felt the sun on my palms this morning.
The leaves so green,
so very, very green.
It had rained for days on end,
the clouds never giving way
for the sun to poke through the white pillows.
But today–in their honor–the sun
shines on my palms
I had missed the majority of the parade this morning, so I shot some street stuff of what I could during and afterwards, I hope you enjoy your Memorial Day! All images © Eliot J. Grigo.
