Images For Android Phones: A River Runs Through It

Red. The color of those who lost their lives during the American Revolution. This is a photograph of the Enoree River In the back country of South Carolina. During a recent hike, I visited the Musgrove Historic State Park. A signifcant battleground between the British, American Loyalists, and the American Patroits. Intense and bloody battles insued. A divided country. Friend vs friend. Brother vs brother.

red…
a transfusion of color
in blood and tears
– of lost
and gain
but not without
the soul in pain
– the spirit transformed
and the cries of freedom
in red flow

down by the river
brave men fought for independence
– for some
