Gettysburg Tanka

Gettysburgh Tanka

first crocuses
purple, yellow, white–
we spend
the equinox
touring the old battleground

monuments
of both sides
weathered now–
a mossy boulder marks
nothing more than time

at the peace flame
a driving wind–
to remember
or to forget,
spring is the right season.
