Grass ~ Haiku

Just read in the Guardian newspaper that two more US troops have been killed in Afghanistan and two more UK soldiers from 3rd Battalion Yorkshire Regiment have been killed at a Helmand  checkpoint by an Afghan policeman.   When will the killing ever stop?

Had to change todays Haiku on the theme of “Grass” as this news makes me so sad:~

    I enjoyed reading your haikus so much that I nominated you for the Super Sweet Blogging Award. Keep up the good work!

    • Thank you for reading and taking time to respond. I can’t bear the waste of life that goes on all over the world. As a mother I just know how the families of these young men ~ and women feel. I feel for everyone involved.
