Soft, Shining Peace

Inspired by WordPress Photo Challenge …. ABSTRACT

“There were many words that you could not stand to hear and finally only the names of places had dignity. Certain numbers were the same way and certain dates and these with the names of the places were all you could say and have them mean anything. Abstract words such as glory, honor, courage, or hallow were obscene beside the concrete names of villages, the numbers of roads, the names of rivers, the numbers of regiments and the dates.” Ernest Hemingway – A Farewell to Arms

This Post is a sequel to For the Fallen

In the silence beneath the soft grasses bending in the winds of the Somme Battlefield, lie the unknown graves of 11,000 young Australian lives.
