Oh, Christmas Tree
Deep green conifer
lovely against pure, white snow
rue loss at Christmas?
grief
Grief
Despair consumes him
reliving terrors of war
mourning loss of life.

pine
K.I.S.
No fancy coffin
Ornate design to hold clay
Turn mourning to joy
refugees
Refugees
Woe for the children
must flee what is familiar
Brood in foreign land

  1. Wonderful haiku poems. “Grief” is so straightforward, one does not have time to look away and ignore the realities. I have the same photograph taped into one of my journals – pretty much sums up the whole gambit of what is humanity.

  2. One cannot read Grief and see the photo without grieving.
    Most years we reuse a potted Norway Pine (houseplant) for our Christmas tree. We have watched our little tree grow into a fairly big tree now.
