Respect

RESPECT I a metamorphosis out of the breeze gusts of wind… tidal waves rush in RESPECT II living together a love that can never be… the rose and the thorn RESPECT III the sound of nature the crash of a falling tree… footprints walk away © Harry J Horsman 2020

Really nice Haikus giving one pause to think about the things that are the most important. The respect for not only the ones around you but for your own environment as well. Nice job. God Bless. JB

Sadly man has turned his back on nature and disregarded her warnings. I fear however that she is not one to be ignored. She might use those winds and tidal waves to make her point hit home! Great job Harry. ;0)

Wow!~ At least the person walked away. How many times could we have died from something as simple as a falling tree but God was looking out for us. Enjoyed reading your work. Reads like a great contender for the contest. Sara
