Haiga 637 Robert D. Wilson haiku - letter

Haiku by Robert D. Wilson. Artwork by myself.
I picked this haiku from Robert's Viet Nam haiku series.

Viet seems so long ago. I was going to school in Hawaii when the war was raging, some of my classmates got drafted, some volunteered. As for myself, I was too busy adjusting to the school and to American way of life, to really see what was happening in the world. In a way, I was fighting my own little war on a little island in the Pacific. Receiving a letter from home at such time was so comforting, it helped summon up my will to face each day of the small battles.
