Butler Woman ~ Normandy June 6, 1944

She was standing on the porch
that day in June
watching her youngest
come running up the steps
then across the lawn
when it happened
on a beach called Omaha
where her eldest lay now,
face down
no longer clawing
at wet sand.

She stood there, quiet,
holding him close,
fingering his hair.
