Haiku – Personal Demons

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

children’s passtimes
screaming shouting joyous
summer games

children playing
laughing as they kick their ball
man walks by

power struggles
inside the man’s breast
he teases children

a desert demon
lies within his adult soul
envying innocence

    • Well, the haiku are based on a man grabbing the kid’s ball and not giving it back causing one of the kids to threaten him with a stone. He has a vision of a desert, which his guru tells him is a vision of his demon. But they can be interpreted in many ways not days.
