Some years ago, my wife and I visited Washington, DC on the Memorial Day weekend. We visited all of the war memorials but the Vietnam War Memorial struck me the hardest, probably because I grew up on the ritual of the nightly evening news with that day’s body count. At the end, the US Botanical Garden was a wonderful and much needed respite. Another photo, a self-portrait from the same time, is here.
I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
