    on the wrong side of history graveyard tulips

    Sometimes it’s hard to bear, just like a beggar’s cough reminding him that someone is always alone, just as the famous road-weary poet Hosai Ozaki, over nine decades ago with his brief but poignant

    "coughing alone even" [trans. Alan Summers].

    Kadric’s own one line haiku are a showcase of how a monostich can carry the weight of the world and compare with the Japanese poet’s iconic and lonely coughing verse. He displays the deadly impotence of war carried across various one line haiku.

    The beauty of tulips does not wear out even when they become old and that's how history comes into picture. It's a contrast, but it's absolutely interesting.
