Shadows only remain
Where life stood its ground
Far above their air
Its devastation burned down

This is the one day they say

Those who fought for us,never thought to ignore us.... 

We weren't ignored,for it's the blood that was poured 

With the intent not to bend but restore us.

tanka revolution

Tanka 
Working class people 
Do not trust socialist intellectuals
Don´t get lured by them 
They are upper middle class people 
Who want to run your revolution.

THE BANK JOB

Out of the bank I ran.
Money and gun in hand.
Bumped into a marching band.
Kids let out a scream.
A flash back from my dream.
Frown on my face,
as cops gave chase.
They screwed up my plan.
In the alley I made the last stand.

Short Memorial Day poem by Gary Fields| Details | |

Solitude




The unattainable
    Boundaries'
Of Solitude
    Diminishes
With the Will
   Of God'
And drifts away
   To sand...

Short Memorial Day poem by Connie Gildersleeve| Details | |

Memorial Day

soldiers gave their lives-
enormous price for freedom
Gray clouds in morning



*An unofficial beginning of summer with a long weekend of BBQ's, beer and having fun, but 
we all should take a few moments and remember the real meaning of Memorial Day.

Short Memorial Day poem by Rodgers Roger Carter| Details | |

Old son, Young Dad

He died forty
with strength and wit
He left a son Young and young

He died nighty 
With bones no teeth
He left a boy pale and forty

They meet in paradise
Dad still forty
Son at nighty
Dad thought it was grand pa
Son thought he was grand son
Who had died also

Memorial Day

                                                       memorial day --
                                              soldiers stand at attention
                                                    a bugle plays Taps

The World of War

the Yankees and Rebels did fight
sometimes for hours through day and night

the Civil War is in the past
but the hatred will always last

ignorance in all the wars
nothing will even the scores

lives are always lost
loved ones pay the cost

peace may never come
when leaders are dumb


Short Memorial Day poem by Leo Larry Amadore| Details | |

The You in Me

The you in me that I know

goes with me where I go --

the you that isn't you at all

comes to me when I recall

the days we spent as we grew.

I never guessed, I never knew,

all that I'd have left of you

would be my thoughts of those two:

of the you in me, the me in you.

Short Memorial Day poem by Ifeanyi Bob Ekechukwu| Details | |

The Night Owl

Hoot! Hoot! Came the call
In silence I listened,heard
Nothing.
Suddenly, hoot! Hoot! 
Came the cry,tree 
Branches rustling,wings 
Flapping.
Seems the world was in 
Oblivion-the absolute 
Silence.
Went I to the window 
and Looked into the 
empty Darkness. As I lay 
down,I Knew somewhere 
I would Hear that sound 
again.

Short Memorial Day poem by verlena dillard| Details | |

A Day in the Sky

The cool air,
blowing in my hair,
the sound of bells ringing loud,
sitting down on the soft clouds.
This down right pleasure,
is what I'll treasure,
that no other dream can measure.
These yellow an red skies,
reveals its moment of time,
sleeping in the mid air as much as I please,
the view of the day in the sky,
as clear as the seven seas.

Short Memorial Day poem by David McSorley| Details | |

A Slient Tear

A silent tear runs down her face
As she lays within this darkened place
Her mind alone cannot forget
Her memories so clear and yet
So long ago her baby's cry
When from her womb the child did fly
Into her heart forever hers
If only for a moment, "Oh why not year's"
And now the moment she has prayed to be
Her last silent tear and her broken heart free

Short Memorial Day poem by peter Onyancha| Details | |

For Chinua Achebe

The gods have eaten your cake
But we still have it
Some with dirty hands
Stalking your pages
And others virgin hands 
Talking your pages
With seething hope

Above you a shrine, a wreath of letters.
The father of stories
Where children never sleep
The auditorium where curtains never fall
The age mate of gems

The gods have eaten your cake
But we still have it

Short Memorial Day poem by Peter Thomas| Details | |

Nothing to lose

Broken, Cold, Empty, Devoid of hope
These are the forgotten generation
These are the few who stood up
The young that fell for such a cause

Lost, scarred, unremembered,
These boys sent with hope of glory
Learn instead what it costs
To die a nameless death

Over they go with nothing to lose
Over they fall with nothing to lose
Over they die with nothing to lose


Short Memorial Day poem by Surajit Dahal| Details | |

Lovely were Those Days

I dream of lovely days,
The day I met you,
The chat we had, the love we shared
Jubilant were those ways.

The moment you called me up, 
Delicious was the tea,in my cup
Terrified were I, shocked and shiver,
Rattled with the waves of happy river.

We talked night and the day,
So much to talk, so new to know,
Sitting by the beach or the bay,
Cuddling by the chilling snow.
