dave ...how fortunate that they got their priorities. Let's hope that South Korea isn't tooo upset! Actually today at The Trafford Centre [ christmas shopping UUUUG] I saw an old soldier in a chair with his blue beret on and all of his korean medals. Not that long ago.

This haiku is sharp in its neat recording of the present moment.

And I enjoyed the unexpected poem of the previous post, so rooted in myth.

Powerful line:
"The younger firestick kicks his brother on the shins", it gives the poem a great natural energy that lasts until the last line."

You just have the way of saying it with the correct words.
Royal Wedding.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Yes, something like that - your encounter at The Trafford Centre - really brings it home.

Much thanks for both comments.
I have long been fascinated by the myths of the Aborigines. You speak of the natural energy of my line: that is exactly what the myths have for me.

Thanks. Hope your celebrations went well.

Flatterer! - but thanks anyway!
