Life’s Intersection – a poem

DivXSnap-2017-07-13-12-18-42-654My #whatthehaiku video tonight turned into a seven-haiku collection, so I thought I’d put it here as well.

Life’s Intersection

A crack and you know

Though you shut out what you saw

You can’t stay the sound


It rips through your heart

Screams your baby is taken

Leaving you standing


Surrounded, alone

Callous engine roar recedes

Then silence of truth


Silence of judgement

From the concerned, yet relieved

Relieved they’re not you


The games you have played

Have now ended forever

Life’s intersection


Green to endless red

All joy and meaning stolen

And no-one to help


‘Til a wrinkled hand

Reaching outward to connect

And hope is kindled
