Haikai: memorial

#Haiku Happenings #5: Jane Dougherty’s latest #tanka for my current #haikai challenge!

Jane Dougherty Writes

For Frank Tassone’s haikai challenge. Poppies are disappearing from European fields because of intensive farming methods and the ripping up of hedgerows. As we destroy our natural heritage, we destroy our collective memories too.

years pass and

smooth the furrowed field

where no poppies bloom

blood bone beneath forgotten

like useless flowers
