Sunday Haiku

Coffee and Pen

Changing of the guard –

The old soldiers marching home.

Ashes to ashes.

* * *

Seeing no people,

Scowl turns to retribution –

A sickening thud.

* * *

Perpetual ache.

Trying so hard to improve.

Compulsive restart.

* * *

An understanding.

Facts no longer an issue

In the face of faith.

* * *

Picking your battles.

I came home tonight because

I left blood behind.
