Enemy at the Gates

sent to the slaughter
caught between levels of hell...
neither one he chose

he lay amidst death
destiny arrived on time
alive…it chose him

Towers turned to dust,
Pentagon ablaze in pain,
Still the Eagle Stands.

Turning our anger,
Pretending to be happy,
Quasi- war Lingers.

Give Islam its due.
Let them prove their peaceful cant.
Or loose the Genie.

Hunger Games -Tracker Jackers

fire rages through woods
katniss injured, climbs tree top…
a plan to survive  

mutant killer wasp
tracker jackers’ nest above…
entertaining games

poisonous stings ooze
with green puss and intense pain…
triumph applauded

Hunger Games is not a movie yet but an extraordinary series of books.
I can’t wait to see the movie!

Contemporary Haiku

"Contemporary Haiku" by Catie Lindsey:

children play and scream
in a world at war ~
school bell rings

in a war-torn town
where a child screams for his mom. . . 
a school bell rings

(I've removed this revision for Catie from the contest and am using the tanka above it on my poetry page!)

War or Peace

good mother-in-law
reluctantly steps away
taking second place

she will be happy
if his new wife loves her son
half so much as she

new daughter-in-law
thanks her for raising fine son
showing rare wisdom

Where Eagles Dare-Where Eagles Dare

where Eagles dare
the golden horizon seen...
man weary from war.

where Eagles dare
humanity in conflict...
such is intellect.

where Eagles dare
per ardua ad astra...
folly of mankind.

Dark Light

                    War is a dark light
                we fight for others to live
                     ignited by words

Mind Game

heavy confused dreams
filled my night with restlessness
subconsciously awake

endlessly the mind wonders
every thought held as captive
unrelenting fear

the mind takes over
grandmaster of illusion
and I the pawn of the game

a mental torture
I mount my attack, countered
I awake, checkmate

Drifting down slowly
Painful, sad but tender warm
