#Haiku Happenings #6: Merril’s latest #haibun for Colleen’s #weekly #tanka #poetry challenge and my own current #haikai challenge!
I wake to see Venus gleaming as the sky lightens from indigo to azure. The goddess of love beckons and beseeches, but the war god always wins.
Morning star rises
heralds the poppy-red dawn–
Senseless wars go on,
honoring in fall parades
stars blaze, flash, and die
