Conflict Haiku

A tired dog barks

Under the star spangled sky

While children burn.

Thanks for the comment, StarPoet. I didn't really think I liked Haiku until a read a few and tried myself. I think the restriction on length means that there is just no room for the writer's ego to show through, and forces one to strip back to the essence of what is being said. I also think that the focus of Haiku on the seasons and nature lends itself to poetic content and keeps the content within the sphere everyone's own experiences and knowledge. Thanks again!

Short but so powerful pieces here. Sometimes the truth can be summed up so well in so few words.
