The Final Salute - Poem by DAVID GERARDINO

A army of flowers, yield
to the sun, the sky spits
the rain, and the lord
fills it with love.
A army of flowers, yawning
by a stream, this is GODS
paradise, not the devels
perverted dream.
A army of flowers, auction
off this love, thank you
she says, , , and gives the
final salute

    Hi David. (GOD'S) paradise perhaps? This poem reminds me of Arlington Cemetery with its sea of head stones and honor. As a war vet...although this poem mentions nothing of the military, you have captured that essence. That's incredible. Thanks. OH...(devil's)
