A Room of My Own: Separation Wall Haiku

behind hill after hill
of olive trees
the separation wall

Note: Below is my another poem about the separation wall:

The Promised Land

What will you do if they uproot your trees?
What will I do? Only plant them again.
What will you do if they bulldoze your houses?
What will I do? Only build them again.

Facing the stone-wall silence of riot police, a large gathering of men, women and children sings louder and louder, but none concedes his or her position.

hazy half moon
the separation wall
where olive groves stood
