Margaret Smith Poems
Living on a silver planet, Dreaming in greens and blues, Sprawling on a violet pillow, His black and white world is gone, vanished in the myriad of hues.

The Tank (A Haiku)
Dirty tires roll on Stopping every now and then,
Prologue (A Haiku)
He did mighty things
Where Are You Tonight?
It’s a cloudy night Pure darkness, no light Nobody in sight What am I to do?

The white of his comrade's face,
The forest green of his nation's tattered flag,
The orange of the sun setting behind the base.
Yes, this soldier's world is no longer black and white-
