Leather Mountains

Mountains of leather,
Summit holocaust landscapes:
Valley of dead soles.

Inspired by the piles of shoes
in the Auschwitz concentration camps

    Early morning reading to get the mind buzzing. Thank you for sharing your excellent poetry Raul. Have a fabulous weekend and I hope to see more of your poetry when I get back to the Soup Monday. Usually pretty busy on the weekends with family so don't get to read much. Love, Carol

    Another potent senryu, my friend! I love the third line! It's nice to see you posting. Ruben.

    Well done, Raul...a macabre and piteous sight, indeed. Good work.

    very nice senryu, Raul. So sad, but with strong imagery. Hugs, catie :)

    i knew what you were talking about before reading your note below the poem and you've painted a very powerful image. great poem (and i love the "soles" - "souls" connection).
