Poignant and beautiful.
Excellent. Ticks the boxes for me.

No need for thanks, m'dear - but you could have emailed me direct at pennysmith5@btinternet, rather than leave a comment on one of my posts which won't mean a thing to anybody else! LOL ♥ I might just remove it, now I've read it...
So poignant and beautiful...wonderful piece
Last post rings out.
What simplicity is all about, so solidly there!! Lovely.
Wow. Just amazing.
A nice intense feeling of history in a very few words. Well done. My Magpie this week is A Plot Both Great and Grand.
I like how you have set up the rhythm here, with a break that marks "Silence" out from the other words.
Short and powerful. Makes me think I should write a Veterans Day poem. (That's what we call it.)
Lovely words and perfect image.
