Haiku Sunday – Unity – JG

  • So haikus aren’t really my bag; generally, writing one makes me feel as though I have left too much unspoken, but I figured on this anniversary I’ll take a page from Stevie’s book and try my pen at subtle and poignant. Wish me luck:

Unity in pain
Time passed, we revert back
Nothing’s forever

Unity in pain
Unchanged we shame those lost to
Terror and safety

Unity in pain
Attack from out: tragedy
From in: commonplace

Unity in pain
We once stood together tall
Now we divide all

Unity in pain
Scars and scabs and stars and stripes
Memory ingrained
