Murkiness hanging

Steamy and almost cloud like

Camouflaging all

The Cemetery

Cemetery London Brompton Pixabay

One day we went to the cemetery

The flowers we ordered were not in the delivery

We had to settle on pure greenery

But the grave site looked a bit butchery

It was a real mystery

and I became quite jittery

Thinking there had been a grave robbery

Feeling quite quivery

Because I needed surgery

I was visiting Roberta and Michael had written a very funny poem with words than end in ery. Had to try one myself.

There are broken hearts

All over the world today

Love once sweet vanished

VFW Post 2550

I took this picture while in Dunedin Florida, November of 2018. I found the artwork quite amazing. It is on the side of the building at 360 Douglas Avenue, Dunedin, Florida at the VFW. When I look at the picture I think “Power to Fight”.

This post is for One Word Sunday with the prompt being “POWER”
