Haiku ~ St. Valentine’s Day

Haiku ~ St. Valentine’s Day

The last week or more has been hard on the psyche for many of us. As a parent with children at college and high school the murderous acts on February 14th hit hard. To some extent we had become numb to the almost daily news stories concerning gun killings in the country where we chose to live. In a sad way I guess that was the final part of our becoming citizens. This event though was different for some reason and I feel that a sense of despair has finally soaked into my bones.

I thought long and hard about this subject over the last few days as I have been traveling and had more time to ponder than usual, and I have summed up my thoughts in the most succinct way I know how, with reference to that other infamous massacre on the same day…

89 years on
St Valentine’s Day again
When will Love prevail?
