#414 – 4 Haiku

4 Haiku about June 12, 2016

 

 

heart squeezed by anger

the easy spread of hatred

now I want a gun

 

 

for the bereaved; I

am not enlightened—I want

to kill the killers

 

 

insides torn; don’t know

how to love through rage and grief

can’t find my prayers

 

 

we are all sinking

tangled in the godlessness

of separation

      Thank you Elly-Grace….your readership and comments are very much appreciated….still full of incomprehensible disappointment in humanity one one hand, and pride and awe on the other. Regarding collaboration…the more the better…in so many different ways…we’ll talk.
