    cool autumn night
    silence
    speaks the words she couldn't

    empty church
    savouring the whisper
    of my own prayers

    "...from whence we came..."
    smoke rings echo
    the cycle of life

    closing prayer-
    the last candle
    wavers in the wind

    cenotaph --
    an old soldier salutes
    from his wheelchair


    Remembrance Day --
    a song of hope
    from the children

    End of prayer-
    smoke of candles
    in the open
