Contemporary Haiku - Catie Lindsey - My Rewrite -Tanka

Caties Poem 

Children play and scream
in a world at war
school bell rings



MY POEM:  Tanka

Children play war games(5)
we laugh as they run guns raised(7)
Prized birthday gift toy (5)
church bells, war heroes  at rest (7)
Mothers sad good-byes, guns kill!(7)

    It's nice to see you draw inspiration for a tanka from reading catie's haiku! I love both.
