I have an appointment and after that I’ll post new ones here 😎

My Eyes Have Seen

My Eyes Have Seen
Rest In Peace; the past replays-

Soldiers fighting for a brand new Day!

Lives are lost; we are found;

Protecting what is Freedom’s ground.

Sweetheart, Dad with countless lives-

Thank you for your sacrifice!

Legos, electronics, fitted sheets;

Fast foods, salads, a variety of meats…

We take for granted so very much;

Warm beds, breathing…hey, keep in touch!

Warrior, Champion, Victor, Hero-

You might be tempted to say, “Oh No!”

Yet, as I see it from where I sit…

Those titles are a perfect fit!!

Salute 

With memorial day coming up I wanted to share these poems :
The Colors Of Our Flag
Shots are heard from across the ocean;

Our world is a little safer tonight.

Someone will be resting too,

Because they saw through our eyes….
Sitting here writing these words,

As explosions rearrange geography;

I’m worried about what to wear tomorrow…

When others fight to keep us free.
How can I complain about this or that 

And demand to have things done my way?

Have I become a thankless enemy-

When so many heroes sacrifice each day?
Taps Across The Ocean 
Broken hearts and broken hopes 

in what seems a world away;

Blood baths don’t ever clean anyone-

Loved ones fight every day;
Men and women who volunteer,

Knowing they might not come back….

Giving all for our freedom here-

Their love doesn’t lack.
Moms, dads….all family and friends;

Even sons and daughters too-

Wear their uniforms for their country…

But are they the forgotten who?
Graves blanket this whole earth,

Holding memories never forgot;

Each one should be told of

Freedom which was sacrificially bought….
So that you and me may enjoy the sun,

Ride a bike, laugh with a friend-

Pray with me each every day……

That this war on life will end.

Eagle One

I’ve been working on this tonight :

2 Salute You!

This is on a birdhouse:   
   

I Salute You!

  

Screaming Eagle

  

Eye Am Just Getting Started

  

Bird On The Box

My next project…. I drew this in November of 1999….would look great on a box 😉
  

About Face

About Face
Ugh!! Look at the weather!!! I hate shoveling!! And the lid’s off the toothpaste again!!! 

I wanted to park in that very spot!!!! Shhh!!! I can’t hear my football team win!!!
You’re taking too long with your decision,

Let me go first while you decide…

Another ticket while I parked in a fire zone!! I was just a second inside!!!!!
Oh my!!! I can’t take this no more!!! Stress

Is too much for me!!

Until I see soldiers getting off of a plane 

To rest while keeping us free.
Tears are falling, folded flags are held;

“I love you” wraps tight each embrace;

Where do I get off complaining of life

When I see the look on each face.
I don’t think shoveling, or lattes were not their minds…time just suddenly stopped

This moment I give to our soldiers who never let the ball get dropped!
