The guns fell silent

one hundred years ago, but

it didn’t end all war.

.

Mired in mud and blood

patriotism butchered

a generation.

.

If only those

recruitment posters were true

and their lives bought us peace.

Diva Winter grips

her sequined white cloak. Clinging,

while we wish for Spring.

Nothing says summer

like the  swaying of a hammock

under a tree.

In this heat

my body is a compass needle,

aimed at cool water.

Love sits in a box

in the fridge: apple crumble pie

for breakfast.
