Waves



waves of hate
slams tower of faith,
city burns

~0~0

waves of despair, dust
warping eyes weak of hunger,
sips of vinegar

~0~0

water trickling down
rooftops to shallow basin,
flower blooms, waving

  1. Wave of hate can lead one to an early grave. Like how it trickled in at the end.

  7. This was a beautiful set of haiku, but the first one is my favorite. Waves of hate will certainly destroy a city . . . or anything else for that matter.

  9. Great haiku first.. one can see the flames and city burning..hate is capable of doing that.. reverse this, Grace.. Waves of love, make tower of faith grow; city sparkles/shines/glows....

    RS:)

  11. Grace, this set is very nice! The first one is my favorite :-) And I actually see a link between the three - first destruction, the second one describes the misery after it and the last one throws some light of hope on the whole pic :-D
