fire and the shadow …

fire and the shadow …
illusion eases my mind
blossoms fill my eyes

winter and winter
and our sons gone to flowers
the wine gone bitter

a sacred fire burns
deer are moving down the woods
a nice rain today

I’ve had war on my mind. So war and mind are the first two. For the third one I wrote down what was in consciousness at the time.

¹ “winter…” The second line in the second haiku is an homage to Pete Seeger and “Where Have All The Flowers Gone?” Here’s a link to him singing the song.
