Carpe Diem's HAIKU

Carpe Diem Special #117, Tomas Tranströmer’s 3rd “a mother of stone”.

The boy drinks his milk
and sleeps cozy in his cell,
a mother of stone

Jailed into myself
Unbreakable fence captures
Mother of sadness.

War is not over
Bring some well-meaning actions
Giving love a chance.

Longing and wishing
Summer meadow is flowering
Waiting for lovers.
