Shadow of Our Flag





















I remember seeing faces
of heros of the past.
As they fought and died
and raised our flag high upon its mast.

We used to stand reverently
with our hands upon our heart.
And proudly pledge allegiance
to a nation taking part.

--

Stark against the pavement
I see the banner wave.
The shadow of our flag
of a home that once was brave.

--

As freedoms beacon 
to the world we stood.
Stalwart, firm and united
a champion of good.

The greatest of nations
reaching for stars.
Seeding all other nation
with the dreams that were ours.

--

Stark against the pavement
I see the banner wave.
The shadow of our flag
of a home that once was brave.

--

Lost to the past
American dreams.
Dimmer each day
are those glorious beams.

Eclipsed by the shadow
cast by our past.
We are living today
in the time that is last.

--

Stark against the pavement
I see the banner wave.
The shadow of our flag
of a home that once was brave.

--

Still some men dream of freedom
and stand upon the wall.
Bearing arms against troubles
singing of Montazuma's halls.

Liberty doesn't fade away,
going quietly in the night.
Its a thirst that can't be quenched
or lost without a fight.

--

Stark against the pavement
I see the banner wave.
The shadow of our flag
of a home that once was brave.

I stand in that shadow.


Will you stand with me?

Periculum: Sold

Wow!  Someone bought my story Periculum on Amazon.

This may only be exciting to me.  But to me, it is exciting.  I have a promotion scheduled to start on Saturday, September 8th where my story will be available for free download to Kindle and Kindle reader devices.  But it looks like someone couldn't wait.

So if that was you.  Wow! and Thank you.

But in my heart of hearts, I hope that it was someone that I don't know, that just stumbled upon my story and thought, "Sounds good." and purchased it.

So here is a quote from the story,"It doesn't think and cannot be reasoned with. It is like wind flying in the face of chance."

More to come.

Pre Launch Information

My first short story has been published for Kindle.  You can find it here.  Periculum is a short story.  (I keep saying that because I don't want people to think this is a novel or something.)

Also, I am officially launching this story on Saturday, September 8th with a 5 day free download.  (Sure I want to sell stories.  But I want people to read them more.)  So mark your calendar, or check back here so that you don't miss out on the chance to download and read this story on your Kindle free, starting on Saturday.
