News Week Cover Story Haiku-Princess Diana Haiku (June 18,2007) - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

princess diana's smile
a fragment of royal blues
rips through the page

princess diana's smile
a fragment of royal discord
rips through the page

princess diana
a smile rips the sanctum
of royal pretensions

princess diana
a smile rips through
a physique of broken dreams

princess diana
a smile rips through
a tunnel of broken dreams

princess diana
a smile that hides fragments
of broken dreams

princess diana
let her rest the way
she smiles

stop the gossips
