Mausoleum of Halicarnassus

still shining rocks

when sun sits at zenith

silence of death



ruined to ill-formed rocks-

whoosh of empty air

Tribulation Haiku

women pounding rocks

tribulation of hard life

death-drop down the hill


* I have seen the local women of the hilly areas cutting down the mountain rocks in order to make way for building up the road on the hills and the drop down from such an elevation.. its treacherous. But they have no other choice, this is a simple tribulation of their daily life in order to earn a living. For Carpe Diem # 243 Tribulation.
