very white

 

A proud man.

He stands in the street

seemingly oblivious

to the chill November breeze.

 

On his head,

his regimental beret.

On his chest,

a row of brightly polished medals.

 

From a strap

around his neck,

hangs a tray

of blood-red paper poppies.

 

A proud man,

doing what he can

to remind us today

of those who died so we’d be free.

    A lovely tribute! 💖 Poppies are an important part of Remembrance Day observations here in Canada, as well. Gratitude abounds!
