A Room of My Own: Blowin' in the Wind Haiku

for Bob Dylan

blowin' in the wind ...
Iraq veterans wrapped
in silence

Note: The poem above is a sequel to the following haiku:

spring dewdrops
cling to a blade of grass --
Iraqi children

Chen-ou Liu

first published in Kamesan's World Haiku Anthology on War, Violence and Human Rights Violation, 2013 and reprinted in Frogpond, 37:2, Spring/Summer 2014, p.101

... haiku by commentators are of a high standard...  ("Haiku and War" by Paul Miller)
