Haikus – miscellaneous

Worn black dirty soles
Long road back from me to you
Flowers for your tomb

Merry-go-round spins
Tales of forlorn skinned hearts
In the treeless park

Hand-sewn red buttons
Staring over her shoulder
The doll’s forlorn gaze

Stony Buddha sits
Shrapnel tears on temple walls
Fired from behind

War Haikus

All Jewish babies
Cried under the occupation
Sorrow eternal ‎

***

Badge of yellow shame
Sewn on the tailor people
United in pain

***

Turned away from life
St. Louis passengers despair
Tsunami of hate

***

Cold invades my soul
As I watch the ghetto burn
A drink in my hand

***

Cigar burning long
After the speeches were said ‎
The man hardly slept

***

Nuclear heads armed ‎
Backyard bunkers all readied
Cold war heating up‎

***
