Two Haiku - Poem by Max Reif

like green trees in drought,
you must draw from the unseen —
send your roots down deep

***

it's the man-made thunder
in the hills you must fear, my children —
its lightning will tear you apart.

    I enjoyed both of these. For me the second one hardest because it is so terrifying. (Report) Reply
