rumors of war
I pull the dandelions

I like the concreteness of the speaker's adjustment and the emphasis on the "r"s in the first line.
An interesting haiku with an urge for peace and prosperity of nature. The reference to dandelions embarks on a beautiful textural density.
A new dawn–
the bud blossoms in
war field solitude

Perfect haiku for Memorial Day. Love it.
cover the field
once covered in blood

The gentleness and lightness of dandelions juxtaposes with something so serious a thing as a war and the contrast generates an electricity. Glad to.have read this.
We tend to yank dandelions from the lawn as we see them as a nuisance, so the narrator's change to a gentle pulling is thought-provoking.
