A Red Scarf.. Haiku


Rebecca's Haiku My Heart


A Red Scarf


A red scarf
tightly holds her hair;
stronger winds

**

Stronger winds;
arrays of dancing 
sunflowers..


**

Sunflowers
stand still in horror;
bodies rain

**

Bodies rain;
among the debris lie
a red scarf..


RS 

Let humanity learn to practice 'humanity'..
A tribute to those perished in the disaster leaving behind
those wonderful memories for their grieving families..
May God let  peace prevail...

    Poignant, powerful tribute Ramesh.
    I believe the sacrifice of all those innocent people is ultimately serving to unite the people of the world at the horror and inhumanity of it all.

    Absolutely Ramesh! May peace prevail so that these sacrifices are NOT needed to help us understand we are all connected.

  7. oh ramesh,
    today is a national day of mourning in the netherlands as they receive their loved ones in respectful silence. this is happening as i read your words and i cannot help but cry. your red scarf so intimately conveys the loss of beauty, possibility, precious lives. we are all inextricably tied to one another. today, a world in communal grief. may this serve to awaken love and kindest regard one to the other. somehow may we all finally and forever choose love.
