from Dachau’s ovens

  1. Almost too powerful, or is – quite thunderstruck. Really you have quite a range in haiku writing, and I suddenly realise that is the difference…

  2. Wow! What to say more Mark. Very strong scene with a strong emotional layer. Thank you for this beauty.

    Sigh … a beautiful poetic image from the ashes of Dachau … would you mind if I reblogged this on my page?

    Reblogged this on Bastet and Sekhmet's Library and commented:
    A moving haiku … a beautiful image from the horror of the Holocaust … in Italian we say … roses sprout not from jewals but from mud … here beauty has sprouted from ashes.
