One Year On Haiku

first loud boom ...
one year on, snowy silence
in this condo


smell of sunshine
the school playground a few feet
from bomb craters


from afar
the air raid sirens
in morning chill
a teen touches a photo
on the Memorial Wall

FYI: For the haiku and tanka about the protests marking the first anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, see my "A Room of My Own" post.
