War haiku

Iraq

before the second war...

Indu Kush backdrop ~
on an afghan rooftop
a scottish soldier blows
a tune

Whitehall parade
our leaders wishing for
bagpipes in Bagdhad

Cenotaph
deeply entrenched
in silence
a few left standing

of magnolia burrs

under the autumn sun
soaking into me

in the city
talk of war. on the trail
a peaceful roar

smoke and mirrors
the swords are polished
last time again

a far off rumble
of war - I reach for
my small grand daughter
