Statue Haiku - Aeneas and Anchises

Aeneas and Anchises
we carry our memories
over each other

Aeneas and Anchises (1618-1619)
By : Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680)
Galleria Borghese (Rome, Italy)

memories of war
they weigh heavier than
all of us on the shoulders

baring all
for the country

Michelangelo's Angel with Candlestick
lighting it up
for the good news
