Haiku For Lost Innocence, by Clara B. Jones

Beautiful flowers,
Damaged by priests and bishops,
“Too little, too late.”

Haiku’s for Hiroshima (II) DEAD END PASSAGES, by Elaine Christie

Mother in mid-run
with child, misshapen soya beans
can’t be separated.

Hair evaporated, skull-
cap pared to carnassial
cordite twisted body.

Frost bitten in maternal
threads, last breath spent trying
to reach their babies.

The eerie thuds at night
of a cathedral falling
animals in pain.

Flies in an ashwood
Stench-land, God has left the build-
ing, nothing moved.
