moments flutter by-
miserable pirouettes
are days and nights

neglected children-
spills from narrow shadows seen
from cloudy skies

forgotten laughter
stains resolute despair-
Armageddon sighs

for Hades decision
map the course of suffering-
wars and scourges

Each exquisite haiku is a gem alone. Taken together they offer a vision into a dying world. We are not there yet, I hope, not completely. I read dystopian science fiction with this kind of vision of what will be if people continue on their present course. Each has a touchstone--at least a small group--opposed. That is where this poem generates--in those--you--who offer hope.

Hi Gillena, technically interesting, I thought this sparkled and worked well throughout - great read - thanks With Best Wishes Scott www.scotthastie.com

Children in wartime are strange survivors. They adapt well because they are quick learners whilst parents grieve and starve while trying to feed them. Mankind alone maps the course of suffering. For all that Gillena you wordled well, please forgive me sharing my own opinions.

I too, like the third verse. Yet, all together these read like prophecy from long ago that has now come due...
