Afghan War, a Sunday Haiku: Haiku-San
Sun fell from the sky,
Its rays cut through like bullets.
I chose the name Haiku-San as it derives from Haiku, meaning unusual verse in Japanese (hai=unusual, ku=verse, strophe) and San, the honorific Japanese title when speaking about people. San is also the phonetic transcription of the first syllable of the English word Sunday, Sun-day hence Haiku-San, a Sunday feature on Alluring Creations involving Haiku I write.
You can find more Haiku in my new book of poetry, As Good AS Gold:
“Haikus at the end were tiny diamonds.” (Kathryn Meyer Griffith, long time author)
“Patricia has caught the canine personality beautifully in her poems. I highly recommend As Good As Gold.” (Love Books Group)
