poems by Donald James Dolby
Haiku - What Is It Good For?
Kestrel still above
Eyes alert it swoops to catch
Mouse on ground below.

Blue sky, black dots, bombs
People falling down and down
Quiet now, all dead.

Black night, moon and stars
Are not shining bright tonight
Never to return.

Sun shines, empty fields
Something missing gone away
Sun shines no one there.

Leave it to the birds
Lions, tigers hunt in peace
Task of war is done.
Notes :-
