May we never have to go through such a terrible experience. It is commendable that powerful countries agree on disarmament of this kind; unfortunately others are trying to do the opposite. Thank you Upma; hope you have a lovely weekend. // paul

Epic eruption...I am enthralled by Oppenhiemer's ancient quote Paul. Such a tall and wide terror. J.A.B.

Hi Justin. Oppenhiemer gave birth to atomic bombs and later in remorse declared that "Now I am become Death"; a very deep self judgment. // paul

The 2nd line is a bomb!!! Like it very much however I don't like such events in history. Yes I am having trouble too with soup sometimes..:( will see you Paul.. Hugs

Glad you like it Olive_eloi...and I like your pun, too! War and all its negative effects are to be condemned. Humanity still has much to learn. [yes, my soup connections have not been at all good lately.] // paul
Date: 7/31/2014 8:27:00 AM
Exceptional write. I hope you will enter my haiku contest and wish you a win!!! I love haiku and senryu and, actually, all poetry - even though I'm only still learning some of the forms!!! God bless you and happy writing. Again, thank you for the excellent write.

Hi Dave! Just now, to log in it took me ages. When I tried (several times) these last few days to post a poem it refused to accept my clicks. Eventually I managed. Even to read poems has become trickier, especially to go back to the start. All in all Soup has become very slow. Thanks for the visit and comments. // paul
