Herod

 

Mother bears her child

and prays the bright, guiding, light

is not a rocket.

nice haiku ian, even has the pivot line in the middle. so many 'haikus' ignore the rules, this becoming something else. although i suppose if we followed all the rules we'd all be writing about frogs and herons... anyway i digress. excellent and relevant.

Neat - and menacingly relevant - haiku Ian.

So short, so succinct, so thought provoking. A clever little poem which I liked very much.
