Memorial Day Landscape Sunset Painting by Greg Cartmell | Saatchi Art

Bones lie where they fell,
bullets long buried silence –
each Spring poppies bloom.

Too many widows
stooped today, wilting at graves —
mourning doves take flight.

Uniformed, each Spring
they march Main in Everytown
trying to forget.

This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to either Memorial Day or the rainbow (niji).
