WAR AND PONDER HAIKU'S

Mother's hope shot! Who will rescue tomorrow? Unending woe... .............................................. Midnight town crier! Women and children take cover Men running to war. .............................................. Dry leaf swaying down Looking from where it falls Fresh leaves, take caution. ............................................. Not minding the meat, Isolated to ponder, Woeing solution. ........................................... Plates without hope war came frowning never to smile.

Perfect entry for Charles's "String Haiku" Contest, Charles. Isn't it funny how these images transfer from country to country...and I'm afraid, unless it can be stopped..soon they will transfer to Egypt. Very sad... Always, Annalise
