Haikus About The Age of Aquarius and Its Foreshadowing

The 1960s
rock musical Hair sees dawn
Aquarian Age

The summer of love
’67 in San Fran
flowers in their hair

The summer of death
’69 in LA means
there’s blood everywhere

Charles Manson decrees
Helter Skelter is now here
so Sharon Tate dies

August 9th four die
August 10th two die
Manson’s reign rains blood

The hippy era
from free love to bloody death
a dawn has gone wrong

This is the dawning
of the Age Aquarius
flowers bloom then wilt

Love followed by hate
flowers in hair gives way to
knives in hand below

The year 2012
some say Aquarian Age
has begun its run

Charles Manson figure
par excellence waits in wings
the dread Antichrist

    A poetic catalog of the age that may lean slightly towards the negative but that’s allowed under Poetic License/opinion and this is after all an excellent haiku series. Nicely crafted DVH.

      Thanks very much, Mike.

      I always found it haunting that the famous Summer of Love of ’67 in San Francisco was followed two years later by the infamous Tate-LaBianca murders in the LA area in ’69 by the “Family'” as Charles Manson called his followers.
