Part two

Travellers return home
Colluding celtish brothers
Swearing to be free


***********
No slithering snakes
Christianity supreme
Are we really free?

For the carpe diem prompt, land of the free

Part three
Fondness for freedom
Celtish tigers rule things here
Bad news for the king


************
Shrugging off snake skins
So too christianity
But Christmas is king

For the carpe diemprompt, for the king.

Part Four
You celtish tigers
Crouched, sprang, attacked, shot, bled, died.
Should we hail a King?

*************

Snake skin shoes and bags
Consumerism rampant
Hail the Christmas king

For the carpe diem prompt,  hail the king

    1. Oh Bill, I bet you can string some lovely lines together. This "grave" place is in Slane Eire. A very bleak graveyard.

    1. Lovely to meet you Kristjaan. You shall definitely see me again. This is a relatively new form of writing for me and quite hard I find.

  7. I like this strong string of haiku, two paths ... awesome choice. You continued the verses in a great way. Haiku isn't an easy poetry-form, but it is for sure challenging to write them. Here at Carpe Diem you can read wonderful haiku and reading haiku is in a way learning how to write haiku. God Bless.
