WAR AND PONDER HAIKU'S

Mother's hope shot!
Who will rescue tomorrow?
Unending woe...
..............................................
Midnight town crier!
Women and children take cover
Men running to war.
..............................................
Dry leaf swaying down
Looking from where it falls
Fresh leaves, take caution.
.............................................
Not minding the meat,
Isolated to ponder,
Woeing solution. 
...........................................
Plates without hope
war came frowning
never to smile.

    Perfect entry for Charles's "String Haiku" Contest, Charles. Isn't it funny how these images transfer from country to country...and I'm afraid, unless it can be stopped..soon they will transfer to Egypt. Very sad... Always, Annalise

    Your impressive haiku series allows the reader to share the hopelessness of people who live in war-torn areas, Charles. You describe it so well! Love, "mum"
