Battlefield

Today is day 29 of September Heights.  The theme is battlefield.  I did plan a lovely picture from Gettysburg to be between the two haiku, but I’m on an ancient computer that had Mt. Dew spilled on is at some point, so that isn’t going to happen.  You’ll have to imagine that part.

the battlefield calls
too soon their soldier departs
sunshine masks scarred lives

***

once a battlefield
now monuments and statues
remember horrors
