Thank you everybody.

@ gautami: Another scene, another feeling.

@ Dalloway: I don't know, where we were. But it would be colder there.

@ Lorraine & Dalloway: To me this scene is a very precise one, for there a just a few circular ponds here. They are 65 years old. It was Dalloway's haiga about her granduncle which inspired me, and a report about cluster bombs. Of course, freedom is in my mind too Sometimes violence seems to be the less horrible way to stop horror. Of course, there is always a price we have to pay.

@ Polona: Well, I am limited in my use of English. So my verse have to be simple.

@ Devike: Oh, I wish my comments were as half as good as your blog-notes. I can't say it there, so I do here: There is a lot of great and inspiring poetry there!

Best wishes
Ralf

Your sparseness in words is excellent Ralf whether your English is limited or not.
A strong image in this one.

Hallo Dalloway,

thanks for your comment. And yes, I've seen the antholgy's call. I sent some verse and they chose two others.
