THEMOTIONAL THURSDAY - Military Haiku

Posted by Shadow Wolfe on January 24, 2013 at 10:25 PM

So.. today I give you this:



And I want a double Haiku.


5-7-5-7-5

Remember that Haiku shoudl have an element of nature, but the theme here is the picture.


What are they feeling? What is the bond? Only duty or more? What emotional value does this hold for the viewer?


And... go!!

Paw in hand through war
They march braving foreign soil
Orders made by those
Rich in power and safety
Take not their honor.

As the tree needs soil
our bond to each other is strong
loyalty like this, no toil
roots deep in the soil, not wrong
to grow in union's song

Yes, my love; it is syllable count, not word. but this is very meaningful and so well suited.

I like it...one helluva challenge. Whenever I get back to the ink, I will tackle some of these.

I was born of wolves
Come down the line side by side
Joined with warriors
And still hunting the wastelands
we are dogs of war
