Memorial Day

Shadows pool in a bottomland field recently tilled and furrowed. A stream, flanked by cottonwoods, meanders through the valley before petering out of sight. A farmer's presence on his porch spills into the silence, stirring a sparrow into song. Around him, more fields and houses where one might expect to hear a rooster’s crow or dog’s bark. The children long gone.

Memorial Day
not enough wind to make
the flag snap
