This is beautiful, Carolyn. Your second line, the way it reads, and the way it feels inside, it is 'furling' in the wind. Perfect. I love your writing. So many good, good poems. Thank you, as always, for your comments about my work. Love, Deb ps. soup mail to you

What a wonderful Haiku Carolyn. It brought back so many memories for me. Though thankfully none of the men and women that I knew that went to war came back that way, I still have memories of others that have gone before them. P.S. Glad to be back in the soup again. Lots of Love, Misty

Congratulations on your win in Deb's Holiday Haiku Contest, Carolyn! This will be another sad Christmas for some families who I pray will find some comfort that their loved ones, though absent in body are at perfect peace with their Maker. Much love, Audrey

Best of luck with this well written Haiku in Deborah's contest. When living in Scotland in the 1980ies we used to put a paper poppy for Veterans Day. A nice symbol in Great Britain!..Love, Gert

A somber haiku. I like the alliteration in the second line of your work. THanks for the comment on "Fragments of a Dream" In all honesty the dream is not a dream at all. The objects mentioned were found in an attic. Therefore, they were perhaps fragments of someone's dream. I also have nightmares. They make great fodder for poems. Especially the dark ones.
