A Thank you message

Dear Soup Members,  A very Happy Mother's Day to all you mother's.
I wanted to thank everyone for not only the lovely birthday wishes but the wonderful 
comments sent on my poem being featured. I have been terribly busy these past few 
days and I just don't have enough time to sit down and personally thank everyone.
I will visit Poetry Soup and comment on your poems as often as I am able. 
Meanwhile, thank you all so very much. A special Thank you to Andrea Dietrich for her 
sweet and thoughtful blog about my birthday. Blessings to all of you. Love, Connie

I feel very honored to have my poem below featured this Mother's Day week along 
with so many other wonderful poems:



Heavy Hearted

A cloudy sky looms 
With threat of rain today,
And our American flag 
Is being shredded 
By the fierce winds 
That constantly blow,
A reminder of our soldiers 
And how they too
Are being shredded in this 
War that no one wants.

Safe and warm within 
My little castle on the hill
I can’t help but think 
How cold winter will become;
That chill to the bone 
They will feel washes over me
As compassion for their 
Bearing up stabs my heart.

As each tour ends another 
One begins, with funerals
To attend and more young 
Soldiers laid to rest with cold
Medals of honor and folded flags 
That will wave no more.
The rain is here and like my tears, 
Comes in sudden bursts.

    ps Thanks so much for your comments to me today. Wish I had three poems of yours to respond to that I have not already read. I will try to see which of your poems got featured. I hardly ever check out the featured poems!

    Also, EXCELLENT this one here, Connie. The way you fit the rain into your emotions at the end, the coldness of the medals on their poor dead bodies. Poetry can't get much better than this. LUv ya, andrea
