A Fragrant Silence

Poppies symbolize those who have fallen in war – particularly World War I, but the souls of the lost and forgotten use them to shout, “here I am” as we living tend to forget them within a generation. In honor of Memorial Day coming up, I’ve put together this scene reminiscent of a glade in the Teutoberg forest, where legions died for the glory of a couple generals and politicians – It’s a story as old as humanity itself, how the humble are the stepping stones for those seeking glory and infamy. May we take a few moment between grilling burgers and sunbathing to remember those who gave all.
