Knight of the Heart (knightsheart)

Poetry, Short stories, Blog, Titan

Gifts of peace
Cherry Blossoms bloom
Beautiful
With short lives
Vanishing too fast too soon
Without war’s cold breeze

Remember 
Pearl Harbor today
Smoke rising
Flags half mast
A sleeping giant awakens
With terrible resolve

Remember
Twin suns scar the earth
Trading lives
For war’s end
Captured by a Times Square Kiss
Babies bloom like flowers

Gifts of peace
Cherry Blossoms bloom
Beautiful
With short lives
Vanishing too fast too soon
Without war’s cold breeze

Thank you to the Greatest Generation

Kiss a Service Person Thank You.
