we talk of war
in her homeland

    I wish good haiku like this could just make one less person die in a war.

    I look forward to more haiku from you.

    the silence-
    half-filled steins
    mirror his life

    Thanks all: The woman who cuts my hair left Lebanon during the civil war in the eighties. It pained her a lot this July when the bombing started again.

    Cheers

    white wisp of steam
    up from the broken cup--
    day begins
