To Lady Liberty,(Haiku Inspired)

Hope remains.
Hope remains.

In the harbor, stands,

a lady, so proud, so grand.

To greet the world there,

Her democracy to share.


A new addition,

On her cheek, a small tear falls,

without permission.

now part of her condition.

Now I will admit my early experience with Haikus was that when someone said Haiku I would say bless you thinking they sneezed. Once I figured out that wasn't what was going on I have learned to love them. One reason is I can't say hello in that few words much less write a poem so I admire those that do.

Anyway I enjoyed this thank you for sharing it.

Thank you botipton, the Haiku is a fine way of expression in a few poignant words that convey a message that the author tries to expose. I admit it can be a daunting challenge and takes a lot of forethought. It seems at times there is more to be expressed that simply will not fit in the format, but still can be awesome in its content. whonu

I am used to your more detailed posts, but this haiku proves that you are just as creative and talented with shorter verse. Very profound and wise post.
