#Haiku Happenings #10: Nick’s latest #tanka!
so the men have come
with their sacks of darkness
to this sainted place
on the green where children played
their deathly spores fester
(Note: of course, this poem refers to the recent atrocious nerve-agent attack in Salisbury, UK, my home.; “sainted” refers to the twelfth century cathedral, the “raison d’etre” of this small city; the psychopaths continue their reign of world terror in even the most obscure backwater. We must extend the reach of wisdom and compassion to counter their horror) .
