  1. Ah, trickle-down economics, the idea that the people who rely on the scraps that fall from the table can be better served by feeding more to those sitting at the table. *sigh* Thanks for your thoughtful post, Mike.


  2. through Haiku Mike speaks
    truth flows, injustices named
    golden harvest hope

    thanks for your haikus and your passion/ frustration…stirs mine too…not a bad thing!


  3. Haiku is one of my all time favorite forms of poetry…and one of the most challenging…….Even more challenging, to express such poignant views of political/economic injustice …Very well done! I also share the sentiment and LOVE the black and whites!! Thank you, for sharing!


    • Thanks Kirsten. For whatever reason Haiku has always felt very natural for me, like a good fit. I like that it keeps me short, as I am by nature not long winded (except for this comment, of course)


  4. the fat cats are sitting back and waiting to see what happens with the economy…..meanwhile they’ll just keep getting fatter. 😦



  5. That photo is so beautiful and the three haikus are the star 🙂
    I just loved the first one ..the way you have woven the vacant eyes of the future and the dying harvest..absolutely marvelous all thre of them 🙂


  6. Normally I don’t think much of Haikus — often they come across as what the public expects poetry to be. For me, it’s a poem strict in form and content with too much simply said and too little shown. This one, however, went a very long way for me — great word choices conveying powerful images, leaving just the right impression for the socio-political-economic overtone. Well done, I shall be back for more!
