The Soldier's Funeral.

tragedy mirrors sunlight;

silently walking away— offering awareness
tears pouring through moving emotions

hurt causes inquiry

questions ask why?

eyes covered
     hands in faces
heads shaking

sorrowfully filled eyes to call
on Comforter—

the home going.

(the soldier’s funeral)

going home, the Comforter on
call to eyes filled sorrowfully

shaking heads
faces in hands
covered eyes

why ask questions?

inquiry causes hurt

emotions moving through pouring tears
awareness offering— away walking silently

sunlight mirrors tragedy;
