Guns and roses
today the two have gone together side by side , Not far from us ( as the crow flies ) is the Stanford battle training area ,
The sound of the guns and bombs in deep contrast to the peace and solitude in our garden ,
The young men are on an intensive training schedule getting ready to go to Afganistan ,
Next week all will be quiet , they will have gone to do their duty , I will be thinking of them as I tend the roses .
I wonder how many of those young men will not come back .
