Israel

Country
Green, fertile
Where Freedom lives
I do love it
Israel.

Blog comment: With this Elfje let us celebrate Freedom; of course Israel is not the only country where Freedom dwells. Readers who live in a ‘Free’ country should insert the name of their own country when reading this. Freedom should be valued wherever we find it and we should do whatever is necessary to protect it; once lost it will be very hard to recover.

just, and willing
to spill blood for

JulesPaige submitted this ‘Elfje Quint’ on Veteran’s Day (UK Armistice Day) 11th November but I had already posted an Elfje for that day so a little late, but still in our memories, I offer it here. The Elfje series first appeared on one of Jules’ blogs. The six pieces were to prompts and are all about one photograph. Follow the link to see the original post. http://juleslongerstrandsofgems.wordpress.com/2013/10/25/addition-miz-q-the-final-of-6-of-a-series-of-newsy-prompts/
