[ for Ahavati with Love ] Purple Hearts

 
 
Poetry to nurse the wounded
warriors having stumbled  
upon land mines
 
Shuttled back from Front Lines
on little red wheelbarrows
and other assorted
makeshift carts
 
Two
Few
Brave
not so Proud at times
We gave it Our all
 
We continue to give
 
Despite every failed
parachute freefall from
great height above
 
still the will to Live
 
We were born to Love
 
Pressing onward day and night
on weary feet, wounded knees
no matter how terrible
the pain smarts
 
Fierce
the flames of Freedom
its fanned furnace  
burns within Us
 
worthy of these
Purple Hearts
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
for Ahavati
the strongest person I've ever known
Warrior of Light and Love that she is

 
💜💜
