fractured memories
 
fall from our tree like spent leaves -
 
the color of loss

Author Notes
My tribute to the many who have lost family and friends this year - and a special dedication to Sandra and Ian.

But many more still grieve for those who passed long ago. Let us all remember each other in compassion and sympathy.

My church holds a service of prayer and remembrance this week, soon after Veterans'/Remembrance Day. We pray for each other and the world. I shall remember Fan Story members.

The yellow background represents resurrection, morning and reveille.

REVEILLE - the bugle call after the two minute silence following 'The Last Post'. It means 'AWAKE!'
