A Warriors Winter Haiku

Updated on May 30, 2011

A Warriors Winter Garden


Snow falls in the Garden

I feel their Blood on my Soul

I watch Granite Grow


Heavy are the Flakes

I honor the Spirit of my Foe

I watch Granite Grow


Cold is the Blanket

Steadfast am I in Duty

I See Granite Grow

      Good poem. I have never tried to write Haikus. They are not as easy as they look, you have to get so much information into a small space.

      Keep it up.

      Awesome! I love the "granite grow" part. I've never thought of headstones growing, but it's a great analogy.

      The frigid fields of granite...engraved with memories of times past, of times greatly struggled, times of our short-lived lives...

      Compelling imagery, Hmrjmr1...Thank you for this.

      They sleep a warriors sleep, God bless them all...Larry

      Wealthmadehealthey Thanks for your comment an interesting interpretation, but that is the greatness of haiku (and most poetry I would suppose) it opens the mind for such through the emotions the words bring forth. I take it as a high compliment that this poem has achieved that. Thanks again

      This is excellent! To understand the imagery in these words...I see them as the coldness of the times, as granite is so very cold....and so much blood is being shed needlessly...Wonderful writing...
