Faith in Freedom

Capricious rebellion raises its ugly head
taking one down paths of sequestered faith
of ancient lies of philosopher’s memories.
The faith of those who lie six feet in soil
of foreign lands for freedom’s redemption
is taught by mothers who receive telegrams
or phone calls which leave an incurable wound.
The seed of freedom is planted deep and       

enduring is the tribute they deserve.

      i am having a hard time linking with people because I am not too web savvy. I also meant to post on Mondays Poetry but did it wrong. I posted on Thurs poets and posted wrong writing. It was not a poem, but a prose post. Maybe now I will figure out how to put my new post My Maestro up. I appreciate your interest. I have been enjoying posts of other poets. I finally figured how to comment on everyones post.

  4. Greetings:

    Week 27 Poetry Potluck is open, welcome/Thanks (4) joining us…share your poetry with us today…

    Happy Monday,
