Haikus Inspired By Yeats’ Poem The Second Coming

Watch the nightly news
Things fall apart; anarchy
is loosed on the world

The world turns and turns
but the centre cannot hold
Best sleep; Worst awake

The deaf falcon flies
above tides where innocence
drowns in sea of blood

Blood-dimmed tide is loosed
The world in 2014
Yeats’ rough beast arrives

-A series of haikus
written by Christopher
Monday November 24th
2014.

    Lucid interpretation and empathy. The man himself would be proud of this DVH.
