War Time Senryu

Cloud of discontent
hangs over innocent child...
lucky are those dead.

    Ah, you highlighted very well, a bleak angle of war. I can take this senryu several ways actually. I see that you have been on a short-form binge of sorts....honing the discipline, eh.

    Hay, my friend, it's one of absolute truth of life of war. Children I always love with my true heart. I will be very lucky, if God takes my life by giving all lives to the Children of this World. We are still failed to love them in many ways. Yours are always genius, I feel. You show one but touch the other, it's your excellent style of writing. Thanks always, bl

    oh my, such intensity of words in this one, harry. One of your best for senryu! thanks for these new poems for me to see today. And yes, I am always worried for my waistline but my new way of eating that I blogged about last week is seeming to help!!!
