War haiku

Deep in the Past ...

into the fog
boots muffled by leaves
marching bayonets

even here a child
searching for four-leaf clovers -
on Culloden Moor*

* battlefield where the last battle was fought on British soil, between the Scottish highlanders under Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Hanoverian-English representing King George II

a torc of pine trees
all that now remains
of Boudicca's wrath

Boudicca : (d. AD 60 or 61) was queen of the British Iceni tribe.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boudicca
