Haiga 547 Mirsad Denjo haiku--Children in disaster
Haiku by Mirsad Denjo (Bostonia). Artwork by myself.
I see children in the news coverage of the disaster areas. So many of them, some lucky enough to be with parents, some without, and many with tremendous stress. I see smiles and laughter, but they are prone to act like that even in time of great difficulty. It is their instictive behavior to protect their lives.
I hear that there have been more than 250 aftershocks of over M5. It is like one feels strong shake almost all the time. Plus that is the constant fear from radiation. This situation will certainly cause great damage to children's mind. Children are not aware of it now, but that's what I worry the most.
What they need is the rainbow of hope.
I'll be out of town tomorrow, hence no new blog posting.
