To Lady Liberty,(Haiku Inspired)

Updated on April 24, 2013
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.

      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.

      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

      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.
