Haiku Challenge

Bombs blow up children
rendering our futures grim.
Love-grown peace yields hope.

Dear Joy

Though I am ill qualified to judge the technical merits of the haiku form, there can be no doubting the sheer potency of the message conveyed in those three short lines. You speak so eloquently for every right thinking person on the planet. To write so powerfully and yet with such brevity is simply masterful.

Kindest regards
