A HOKKU

A HOKKU I Of Nature and man What tragedy, sorrows wrought! Wept, dawn cries its truth II Autumn colors pale White sidewalks heat mother earth Sad, winds and morn's glow III Earth and sky falter Rivers flood with flowing trash Blinded, mankind plays IV Beneath oceans dark Life its beauty imperiled Greed, man bows to gold R.J.

Enjoyed the haiku poems Robert...beautifully intertwined--nature and life emotively blended in this splendid write.

Thank you my friend. Sad reality is that mankind has reached epic engagements in its misuse and and thereby devastation of Nature and those earthen resources that are key to the welfare of all. God bless...
