never forget

aching hearts

at hiroshima

cranes ease pain

This haiku is my response to Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 347 ACHE and Ease. Visit this site to see many other haiku responses from around the world.

Also I am adding another haiku and photo to remember Hiroshima. I first visited the Peace Park and Museum in 1990 with Jill and brought each of my school groups here. Our students would make 1000 peace cranes with their sister school hosts in Osaka and leave them at the Sadako memorial in the Peace Park. A vist to the Peace Museum is a chilling reminder of the horror of nuclear weapons and the stupidity of war.

    1. It sure is, a very poignant reminder of the senselessness of war. The peace museum in Nagasaki is very different, smaller with lots of photos and messages but not a huge range of items. Also in 1990 Nagasaki when I was there Europeans, ie white non Asians) were treated cooly.
