Treasure Island

Roxanne Dubarry

(October 4,1954 / Seattle, Washington)

'V is for Victory'


In the Mukilteo lighthouse park, shortly before
dark, what an awesome sight we did see. The
clouds above Whibey Island clearly formed a
gigantic 'V' is for victory. The reddish amber sky
was a precious gift mofe valuable than either silver
or gold to me. I'm glad it was free, indeed.
What's more, the gigantic 'V' left a lasting legacy
remaining in our eternal memories. The beautiful
amber sky was another heavenly sign. In the
clouds above bestowed upon us a gift of love.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The preceding poem, based upon an actual experience, happened in 2011.
It became the title poem of our 'V' is for Victory Faith Lutheran's church's booklet to benefit our church, and charities. Do believe the clouds sometimes form letters or other objects in the sky? We believe it is true!

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
