On Memorial Day

Hecate says important things about this day.  You might like "He Loved Horses" which is my take on the idea that war hurts not just those who die from it quickly.

In the late 1990s my dog died on Memorial Day.  I deposited her ashes under a tree with surface roots which made the shape of a heart.  The site is on a hill, near the dog park where she used to play.

Despite the trees being coniferous shade-givers, there are always wild flowers in that little heart-shaped garden in spring, summer and fall.  We continue.  Perhaps in some other form.
