A Perfect October Morning .......

A brilliant sun lifts a brilliant breeze that
lifts the flag away from the pole
And just then the sun lights it all from behind
How can you not love this home
this country
this flag
The pile of firewood in a lump unstacked........
Just stole away my patriotic energy
becoming neat rows of
a plan for warmth
beneath that flag
of yours
My fathers... fathers ....fathers
flag

I too wish we all were the same , life is too complicated for those who don't . Sometimes when I try to figure out why some aren't as serene and appreciative I get angry , other times I just shake my head. whats that saying..." forgive them ,they know not what they do !" ? Ahh hell ...lets hang them! LOLoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox:-]
