WILD FLOWERS

The aroma
The colour
The frailty… indeed the frailty

Poppies and daisies
and buttercups and bluebells
And the green, green grass

God’s acknowledgement
of fallen heroes…

Author’s Note: With thanks to Sue Baker Wilson for the gift of a smile… and the inspirational photo

Your poem, Wild Flowers, is a special gift to me because it was posted on my late dad’s birthday. The wildflowers, and specifically the soldier’s poppies, were planted as a memory garden for him and also my late WW2 vet father in-law. Your wonderfully crafted poem is a superb tribute to them both and all God’s fallen heroes. I love it.

Thanks Tony.

You take care of you
Love
Sue
