house of the warrior – November 11

house of the warrior

*Hale Koa, Honolulu

 

waterfalls, pools, waikiki shores

for those who stand and fight

for the rest of us.

 

arizona resting place where

too many died, now beneath

the phosphorescent waters

 

and we recline and thank

God for the grace of

simple heroism.
