We often complain or are
frightened by a nightmare.
But many of our defence personnel
along with many civilians
have lived the nightmare
from which there was
a situation or experience that is surreal
is very strange and difficult to understand,
like something from a dream
I am choosing my visit to the
Western Front Battle Fields in 2017,
for this post.
Seeing all the cemeteries we visited
and the names of the missing in action was
a reality check, if not surreal.
I created this photo for a
‘ghost’ challenge some time ago.
Every time I look at my Western Front photos,
it brings back memories of those now
tranquil French and Belgium fields,
where death once ruled and they were
covered with bloody bodies.
…and eating again.
After expending all that energy,
it’s time for a sleep,
before starting all over again.

During my 2017 visit
to the World War I
Western Front Battlefields,
felt that someone was watching
over us as we toured.
Not the first time I have posted this photo…
however, even though I have created the ‘extras’, in this image,
I’m sure there are spirits of the fallen, lost and missing
standing guard over these cemeteries.
