  1. Oh dear! what a cool photo but the haiku is a harsh reality. Awesome write.

  2. This one actually made me a little sad… it matches the photo perfectly.

  3. The photo really is a great image that magnifies the words.

  4. war and death has no borders …. Soooo subtle one has to pass by again … well done

  5. Will that young soldier’s ghost find his peace? A very sad haiku …

  6. Well done. I like the contrast between the action figure and the sombre words…

  7. A sad haiku … with an interesting photograph using a kid’s toy … takes the bite out of the poem at first but then induces one to deeper reflection … brava, well done.

    Sad … in life and death, the struggle goes on.
