ART & POETRY BY KATHY BOECHER©
Paul is taking his plein air painting group to a sunflower field to paint today. One of my favorite flowers to paint – not only because of their beauty, glory and delicious color, but because you can’t really mess up a painting of these fancy flowers. I declined going with the group, because of my continuous allergies, so maybe I’ll have to paint one at the house today.
As darkness fills the streets this day,
Think of the price it cost to pay,
For freedom to express your dreams,
To voice our thoughts without extremes,
To thank the ones who fought so hard,
Who came back wounded, hurt and scarred,
They sacrificed the greater good,
Their place in battle strongly stood,
They let their light so strongly burn,
Remember what for us they earned,
The freedom to defend our cause,
The peace we’ve gained through death and loss,
Reflections of the Son of God,
Their actions let us now applaud.
