Patriotic Gratitude


Holiday celebration,
the party of the summer.
Red checked cloth
covers the table,
families gather in;
games played in the back
yard, splashing in
pools of blue;
cooling off with
creamy white ice cream
as the dayโ€™s sun
dips below the horizon.
Grateful for the freedom
to celebrate freely.

P. Wanken

Inspired by the prompt at Poetic Asides to write a patriotic poem, and Margo Roby’s Tuesday Tryouts prompt to write a list poem.
