*A soldier falls and lays in the sand,
his comrades cannot help him,
as he is now in Gods comforting hands.
Like many before him,
and many more will follow,
the horrors of war, death, brings so much sorrow.*

A late flowering Poppy lying alone in the wet sand on a beach.
Just like many brave young men who have fought and died for freedom.
Soon after I took this shot, I was inspired to write the short poem above.
All proceeds from any sales of this picture will be donated the the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
Thank you for looking.
I hope you like it.
