The Art of War

A lonely soldier,
A bloody red battlefield,
The misting rain falls.

Thank you Ovidiu for reading my poem and leaving a comment. One reason why I like haikus is that they are very short. Maria Williams has a great series of related haikus.

Thank you Priyanka for reading my poem. By the way, Maria Williams has an outstanding series of haiku poems (all related) in her 'poem' Soaring Hawk---a Haiku series.

Thank you Maria for reading my poem. It was a 'short exercise'.

the haiku poem made me think of a soldier standing in the rain - with many bodies around him - with his sword stretched out- very visual - with just a little bit of words 8-)

Thank you Verlecia for reading my poem. I like to listen to fantasy soundtracks when I'm on PoetrySoup.
