FRIEND

Scrabble letters spell Friend

Faithful one who stands

Right beside you

In good times or bad

Encouraging you to be your best

Nudging you to grow and

Do better, while enjoying who you are now

JULY

Acrostic and Ruba'i poetry titled JULY--USA Flag and Pledge of Allegiance
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2014

July to me here in the USA is the patriotic month.
As we once again celebrate Independence Day I am reminded of the words of our Pledge of Allegiance to our Flag

The Day After…

The fireworks are over,
The celebrations cease.
Independence Day has passed,
Patriotism tends to decrease.
Yet, Old Glory still stands waving,
For she celebrates freedom everyday.
Her Stars and Stripes fly freely,
Unflurried, come what may.
May her presence daily remind us,
To value our liberty.
Let’s choose to celebrate everyday,
We live in this Home of the Free!
