History Senryū 11 Nov, 2016

After hard battles,

An armistice, though welcome,

Is no lasting peace

One thought on “History Senryū 11 Nov, 2016

  1. Friends, I wrote this poem almost a year ago and scheduled it to publish today because of its applicability to this particular remembrance. The insight that lead to it was a pause in a long and ongoing personal struggle that I knew was far from over. Today, as it posts, the poem seems to speak to “the late unpleasantness” this nation has endured and reflects my heart-breaking certainty that we have not found any real peace. Thus is the true magic of poetry.
