A MOMENT'S GRACE (Another one for our Troops)

Dedicated to all who've served... Our eyes met suddenly and locked in bewilderment knowing death had come to one of us We stood almost frozen - in disbelief we stared at one another surrounded by silence in the midst of war And even though mere seconds were all that passed in time - eternity had...

CANYON SUNRISE

Darkness engulfs the shadows of life unseen just before dawn - Motionless - gasping with anticipation, the first flutter of light, to subdue night’s pow’r won without challenge, held without fight before the earliest gleam is exposed revealing outlines of terrain soon disclosed A faint blue-white...
