Poppy for a Veteran

The sign in front of John's Lube lists soldiers' names,
those who are soon returning home.
And every day I drive past I wonder
if I will ever see the name of my son
posted in celebration.

Today I checked the sign and here is what I saw:

my son, listed first, with the others all returning soon.

Nothing fancy, this sign.

But to the families of soldiers, a blessed sight.

In the garden at my home, the poppies seem to know
it's time to bloom.
