I lead a safe life
I have no fears that life will give me a four-second hand grenade today
I am lucky
Fortune of birth has placed me in a position of false reality
My reality is not yours
You may wake up to another day of hand-to-mouth existence; a trek to gain water that is murky with who knows what; a possible loss of friends, family, loved ones, who depended on you
They may lose you
I wake up every day and there is food in my cupboard and my realities of comfort are all around
But, as for you…
All things being equal – they are not – we would all share the good and the bad
So, I say a little prayer for the world
(AKA ‘An Englishman an Irishman and a Scotsman walk into a bargain basement)
United Kingdom Haiku (not technically a country, but I thought that as it’s where I am – I would make an allowance).
(Well, that is the first line done)
Green and pleasant land.
Where Angles once met
With the Saxons and did stay
It is not Saxland!
Ireland, to be sure;
Emerald green and Guinness;
Top of the morning.
Haggis; Robbie Burns;
Bagpipes and a warm sporran;
Porage with some salt.
Iechyd da! they greet us
Yakki Darr is what we hear;
Good Morning to you!
Northern Ireland Haiku
Lough Neagh at its heart;
Ship-building and the ‘troubles’
Bangor is pretty.
NB and if anybody would like me to put up a haiku of theirs for their country of the world (and we can put some up for states of America, counties of Uk and Ireland, etc.) let’s see how that goes, shall we? Graeme:) –
