Red Leaves

Photo: I think of my friend when I see trees with red leaves. I was puzzles why a patch of leaves refused to drop when the rest of the tree is now just it's skeleton.
That patch of red leaves made me curious why those red leaves remain on the tree when the rest of it is bare.

a field of sunflowers







A field of sunflowers,
The news commentator repeats.
Lies the horrors of MH17,

Grandpa used to joke,
If you lie on a field of beautiful flowers,
You will die in peace.

The victims of MH17,
died I hope on impact,
They didn't suffer pain.

But it is the people they left behind,
The mums and the dads, the children,
The husbands and the wives.

Their bereavement, their pain,
Who will wipe their tears away?
Who will comfort the hole in their heart.

Will the leaders be swayed?
To lay down their weapons.
And understand war is morally wrong.

Croissants



My last post on the French theme. The story however is not French but American. 20 years ago, the husband had a conference in Washington DC. He took us on a wonderful holiday. We were staying in NY and the breakfast was Croissants and muffins. Both of them were super size, but greedy me went and asked if we could have a refill of 4 Croissants. The woman said sorry, I will give you 2 Croissants and 2 muffins. I felt sheepish. The younger daughter was only 5. That remained one of our most hard warming stories of our trip to USA.Photo: My last post on the French theme.
