Great Mysterious One, You have been always,
and before You nothing has been.
The Star Nations all over the Universe are Yours,
and Yours are the grasses of the Earth.
Day in, day out, You are the life of things.
You are older than all need, older than all pain and prayer.
Grandfather, all over the world the faces
of Living Ones are alike.
In tenderness they have come up out of the ground.
Look upon your Children with Children in their arms,
that they may face the winds and walk the Good Road
to the Day of Quiet.
Teach me to walk the soft earth, a relative to all that live.
Sweeten my Heart, and fill me with Light.
Give me the strength to understand and the eyes to see.
Help me, for without You,
I am nothing.

God looked down,
at the carnage of Life;
caused by folly,
of mere mortal Generals.
The trenches dug
by the sweat of many.
Filled with bodies,
that were the Seeds of Youth:
for the generations of Nations.
Serving now as only plowed furrows;
In the fields of the dead.
All this He saw;
the waste of mankind,
the futility of War;
and He wept.
Such was His grief,
that His tears rained down.
Churning the ground into mud;
until the ugly scars of war,
He caused the Poppy to grow there;
with leaves of haigh green ;
a hue rarely seen.
The petals were blood red,
as ran the fields of the dead.
The centre was black,
the colour of mourning.
To remind us all,
"Lest we should forget."
Some only remember,
for two minutes,
on a Sunday in November.
During the service from the Cenotaph...
Many don't remember then.

* Dusti is a fellow writer and poet. He has left several of his timely offerings in the comment section of my blog.
I appreciate the opportunity to share his work, on this format. His words are well-honed, yet have the amazing ability to draw the reader in, at a soul-level-always strong and true.
The above work can be located in the comment section, dated 5 September, 2013.
