Fallen

moving images in charcoal hue
haunting our memory horizon
as tears go by

two minutes a year is enough
stealing away from the crowd
wish I could fly

In the Netherlands, May 4 is National Memorial Day for those who fell for our freedom during World War II (and before, and after). At 8.00PM everyone is silent for two minutes in respect.
