Writing With Chiyo-Ni (4) “That’s all there is” July 21, 2014

Today we visit with the world renowned poetess Chiyo-Ni.  Carpe Diem Haiku Kai dedicates this post to the people who died when their airplane of Malaysia Airlines was shot down recently over the Ukraine killing 298 people of which 192 were Dutch. The Netherlands and the world  mourns them.

Chèvrefeuille has chosen this haiku to express that mourning:
cool clear water
and fireflies that vanish
that is all there is…

This is Chèvrefeuilles haiku:

lost lives
leaving just tears –
morning dew

And now I will attempt this difficult task:

smiling laughter
under the Ukraine stars
then silence
