Thx Dave and Nora. But still, I am sad for the bombing..

Haiku are always good for conflict. You only have to read the excellent Croatian 'war haiku' about the conflict the Croatian people suffered.

Thank you Alan. Haiku, and other non-violent and artistic approach such as arpilera, really works in trauma healing. Many humanitarian activists adopt the approach in helping conflict and disaster-affected people.

Wahyu ... these are very powerful.

Well done, Wahyu. I agree about the use of artistic expression in healing trauma. The use of sublimation can be amazingly transformative.
