Haiga 574 Edin Saracevic haiku - Melting candy
Haiku by Edin Saracevic of Slovenia. Artwork by myself.
The word "melt" has taken on a new level of magnitude after the nuke problem broke out. From the very beginning, scientists speculated the melt down of the nuke bars, and indeed they melted down and being deposited at the bottom of the container.
I am not knowledgeable about the "melt down", I imagine it something like in this haiga. The candy, having disolved into the water, looses itself and dispersed in the water as if it did not exist. No so with the nuke. Though its shape changes, it continues to emit radiation for long long time. Chernobyl nuke, even after 25 years, is still in untouchable state. I just hope that someone come up with a technology to disable the radiation.
