James, in a few words you bring such emotion, war brings such sadness, this haiku is a perfect 7 for me, I seldom write of war but I did write a poem called, rest now, brave warrior, if you have time perhaps you could visit it and thanks so much for visiting my poem, it snowed . .

A few words that imply a lot, James. Flanders has long been an inspiration for some of my poetic thoughts. I also have a co-write waiting on the shelf; will post later on in the year. All the best. // paul

Hi Paul, I also as you've just read. I've written a few poems on war, with poems about the holókauston, etc. I look forward to reading your co-write later this year. Kind regards, James :)
