Normandy

Eric at Gold Beach in Normandy last May. We were there days before the 70th anniversary of the landing. Commemorating the 71st yesterday.

“The Leaves are Falling off the Trees”  ~Normandy plus seventy

Tanks do not float
and we cannot go backwards.

West to east, last to first
8:00 to 6:30
Juno Sword
Gold Utah
Omaha

Resistance bicycles, full moon,
coca cola, chewing gum,
cigarettes.

Donkey in a small fenced field.
Cemetery cat, friendly, fat, chaffinches.
Sacrifice, courage, cowardice.
How does your garden grow?

Ten thousand crosses—With eyes squinted,
the markings look
like school children holding hands.
Red beach, barbed wire.
Omaha.

Fox green, fox red.
Easy green, easy red.
Dog
white, green, red.
Paratrooper.
Charlie.
