Anzac Day 2014

We pause to remember
Anzac Cove
and beyond
to the bloodied, muddied stages
of theatres of war
where lost links
of our family line
lie forever
with those who
will  never grow old

Lest we forget.

In the chill 
of loneliness
I wrap myself
in the shadow
of his once being
warmed by the scent
that lingers
on the breath
of memory.

The eye of the cloud

The eye of the cloud
brushes the valley
with silken lashes
