RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #99 Flag&Fallen

Time for Ron’s weekly haiku challenge…

Yes, I am in extremely sunny Finland (really!!) at the moment, but I have to try and keep up to date with as many challenges as I can! At the moment, I am back at the hotel, the kids are trying to go to sleep, Hubby Dearest has gone out for a swift half (or 5) with my brother, so I have time!


Obviously, an apt prompt as it is Memorial Day in the USA…

Flag & Fallen


Gone, But Not Forgotten

Today raise a flag
In honour of those soldiers
True fallen heroes
Protected flag and country
They’re gone but not forgotten

Ritu 2016

      Thank you sis! πŸ™‚
      It was just under 3 hour flight. Should have taken a hour in the car to the airport, but traffic extended it to 2 and a half hours!
      From the Airport in Helsinki, around 25 minutes to the hotel, so not bad!!!
