one challenge, one heartbeat, one goal
blinding blast--Boston’s blood
achievements brutally, ruthlessly denied

(My prayers and heart go out to Boston--the Athletes and their loved ones)

    I like this poem. It is very honest about life and what happened. ~I must also thank you for your kind words. The pictures on the front page are determined by how many points you earn; eg, posting comments and poems. I live in Washington, quite a ways from Texas, never been there actually. And yes, I do enjoy an occasional haiku, though I think I would get bored if that was all I wrote.
