The human empty shells shown
One dark angel weeps

Haiku 5 - mournful cries, way of nature, flight into eternity

mournful cries fill the air
mother bird calling for its baby
eaten by the cat

mantis catches butterfly
I am sad: yet, that is 
the way of nature

loud feathered thud
- flight into eternity
deceptive glass pane

Had Killed My Own Son Horn Haiku

Remember one day
When there was both blue and gray
With sad things to say.

Civil war was done
And no one really had won
Had killed my on son.

Can you imagine.

Then I Cried and Cried Horn Haiku

Then I Cried and Cried Horn Haiku

Before never cried;
Until one day my dad died
And I cried and cried.

My dad was killed on the Aircraft Carrier Intrepid.
It is in New York Harbor with my dad's name on 
a plaque inside: ARTHUR FREDERICK HORN, CPO,
AOC. I had just turned 15 and never cried in my
whole life ever before. I was cutting the hedge
next to our house. A Navy Gray car just stopped 
at the steps leading up to our small, plain house
on 4545 Hampshire Avenue, Norfolk, VA. A handsome
Lieutenant got out of the car. I could tell his rank
because he had two gold bars on his sleeve. He said
hi to me and proceed up to the front door. My mom
let him in. He was inside for about 15 minutes them 
before he came back out. He said goodbye, climbed 
into and drove off. It was in the middle of the day 
and there was not a sunset there for him to drive 
off into. Mom came out and was crying with tears in
her eyes. Jimmy (Everyone else called me Jim), your
dad just died and they haven't found his body yet. For
the first time in my entire life I started crying. I had 
never before ever. They had a service for him at the
Naval Base chapel. That was the second time that I 
cried. They found his body after it had been in the water
for three weeks in the Mediterranean. The only way they
could recognize his body was the laundry marks on the 
bottom of his t-shirt. Now I new why those markings were
there. We have dog tags (Identification tags) in the Army.
If you notice, there is a notch on both ends of it. That is so
they can put it between your teeth so it will stay in place.
They buried my dad in 200 feet of water off of Sicily to the
east of it. We were going on a cruise between Spain and 
Turkey. We went by Sicily on the cruise. I had the ship's
captain notify me when were near where my dad had been 
buried. I through some flowers off into the water as a memorial
for my dad. That is the most significant thing that ever happened
in my life. Death does come unexpectedly. My mom and I never
expected it. Until this day my poetry writing if my father substitute
and a form of sublimation.  Why do you write your poems? I am
sure you must have a significant reason just like I do. May you find
much pleasure in your poetry writing just like I do. Jim Horn
PS. They sang Faith of Our Fathers at my Dad's funeral service.

Haiku 17 - double

The small, full moment  
of love in the afternoon. 
Awkward and nuanced.
               •
Small, empty moment,
a remembrance of passion. 
My constant sadness.

Haiku 8

I feel the lost knot

The space of regret.
