This week for Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly Poetry Challenge, I thought I’d try my hand at a Haibun and incorporate my Haibun with a powerful video that Sally Cronin recently shared at her Smorgasbord Invitation. Profound moments of time in the last 100 years of humanity. Powerful, memorable, and poignant moments in time.
Poetry Rules: – Choose your form of poetry and use SYNONYMS ONLY for the words – Hobby and Play
I’ve chosen to write a Haibun with a double Haiku
I believe with all the madness in the world, these moments in times of turmoil serve as reminders of ongoing world struggles we live through and somehow overcome. But the past has a way of resurfacing. This video is a quick refresher course on some of the biggest things in life that can happen to us – things we often take for granted thinking they’ve been eradicated – things we think won’t happen again. But they do.
Life is like a sport
We keep on striving to win
Winners and losers
Keep sight of the wins
The alternatives are dire
Lives become the game
My poem was chosen as poem of the week!
