Wave that flag

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I live in an old fishing town.

The boatyard uses the crane you see to lower boats into the harbour...or to lift them out.

Memorial Day and Independence Day the boatyard hangs the flag off the giant crane.

We can just see it above and between the rooftops from our living room window.

All of old town can see it and all of the boats in harbour can see it as well.

There’s something very settling about seeing that flag this year.

We may not have the parades or wreath laying ceremonies or back yard picnics

with all our friends and family while we quarantine

But “we’re kinda proud of that ragged old flag.”
