Sandy Hook Elementary School mass murders haiku


gun law - sandy hook
wakes us up
to its horror

sandy hook
the children we will
remember

sandy hook - when
breaking news to family
tears up both parties

hopelessly
she prays and waits for
an impossible answer

sandy hook - we try to piece
together the mind
of an autistic murderer

sandy hook - we try to break
free from the mind of
an autistic murderer

sandy hook
dec 21 one week
before

sandy hook - the wish
the end is never
for the children

wrong choices
the children die
to live a longer life
next life

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
