Wall Haiku

summer twilight
alone in the attic, watching
Berlin '61


published on World Kigo Database (Berlin Wall)


Note:

My haiku was written in response to an op-ed piece, titled Tearing Down Berlin's Mental Wall: The fall of the Berlin Wall did not mean the end of the "wall in the mind," published today in The New York Times..
