More black than white

more black than white-
old dirty snow
in the gutters....
everything I cannot say
to my dying father

    This is very sad:( I like the way you compared the dirty snow with the fact that you can not talk to your father anymore. Great tanka! Emilia

    You write Beautifully! Thank you for your comment on 'the price of war.' My best friend went MIA over in NAM, If you'd care to read my poem "At the wall remembering Blue." Don't laugh, I was a Chaplains assistant in the Army. Oh, go ahead and laugh! I Was in Germany.

    I know we all have different beliefs, Phong..but whatever that wasn't said can be said today..they are never far away from us anyway..just out of our view. Thank you for reading my Haiku..I had to revise it though lol. I'll come visit again. ...Audrey

    & Phong-- boohoo-- so you were only kidding after all? oh boohoohoo, what a letdown... :(( ---read your collab with Chris btw, I think it's really good (like I said over there, I actually don't know who wrote which part) so I think that's really good since it maintains that continuity & flow-- way to go for you for trying to venture into free verse :) -- happy that you were able to convince Chris to post it--nikko :)

    sad...one wonders why? since the person will be gone and their will be no reprecussions? The only conclusion can be you wished to punhish yourself? LighT & Love
