Fallen



mingled with flowers
lovingly placed as tribute . . .
        scented leaves gather
fallen like our soldier boy
they brightly blanket his grave

Nov. 11, 2019 for Kim Rodrigues' Scented Leaves Poetry Contest

My gratitude to our veterans, for all who have died in the service of our country
and to those currently serving.

Wow. Strong words, written simply, and with a softly feathered pen. Graceful... a knowing of the pain that every pedal represents... Ann

Like drones used by warmongering leaders so many have fallen. Many will come back to a world where war is no more - Isaiah 2:2-4. Nice write

I don't use the word 'awesome' much, but that's what this poem is, Andrea. You have come up with the most touching tribute to veterans imaginable using the the motif of 'scented leaves.' Awesome! A FAVE right away. Bravo! Cheers, Gershon
