all the church bells
peal their approval.
Will we learn this
time that nothing
is won in war?
of foot soldiers'
souls our only hope?

Charles Waters' poem today reminds me of the beautiful sunrises and sunsets in New Mexico.
My poem is dedicated to my New Mexico hostess and dear friend, Jennifer Lewis. As you can tell from the poem, Jen and I both have some sensory issues -- especially with loud sounds.
Here is the samurai we spotted in a gallery window. I was fascinated with his dragonfly headdress. I'm saving it for a future poem ("Dragonfly Samurai" has such a great sound). I'll put up a photo of his full armor later. He can be yours ... for several thousand dollars.
