End of Days

                                                        war between nations
                                                    rivers overflow with blood --
                                                         the earth convulses

                                                         a crimson sky glows
                                                       meteorites fall like rain --
                                                         hearts fill with terror

                                                           stars fall from the sky
                                                   darkness overcomes the earth --
                                                         screams fade to nothing

                                                            end of days has come --
                                                     all life has been extinguished
                                                             the earth is no more

    Such a well scripted four part SENRYU this is! The urgent message flows perfectly through each verse, ending with '...the earth is no more.' Chilling! BRAVO Kim!! Best wishes, Keith

    WEll done. I have a series of these from an older contest a year ago that was almost exactly the same theme. It kills me I can't reuse those old poems. I just can't think of any other way to repeat my same ideas in haiku form!!
