Unearthing Forgotten Memories_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Suggestions for Memorial DayTheir chiseled names are growing smooth.
The grass and weeds unmown.
These graveyards rarely visited
hide heroes barely known.
The mem'ries of these patriots
who died to keep us free
must be unearthed and called to mind
from sea to shining sea.
This weekend is a perfect time
to stroll among old graves.
Saluting courage of the past
will help us to be brave.
Seek out the places time forgot.
Go plant a tiny flag.
Remembering keeps faith alive
so Liberty can brag.

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009
Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.
