Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge – Synonyms Only

This week’s #Poetry challenge at Colleen Chesebro’s blog – Synonyms only for the words ‘Plan‘ and ‘Spend‘. I’ve written a Haibun and Tanka.

The Border

 

My heart aches for the pain and suffering, and loss of life. What remains etched in my mind are the senseless deaths of many fleeing the only homes they’ve ever known, in hopes of asylum – only to find there isn’t any.

 

Beware the border

A failing system of hope

Yearning for freedom

Human life squandered in search

Where hopes and dreams go to die.
