“For Both: Two Haiku” on the Conflict Between Israel and Gaza

Today the New Verse News published my “For Both: Two Haiku”.

While hoping that in both places the often overlooked movements for nonviolent resistance will take deeper hold, I feel pretty much dumbstruck over the escalating war between Israel and Gaza. Flashing nightmares about rockets and air raid sirens over my own much safer (despite the neighborhood gunfire) part of the world, listening to both Jewish and Arabic news sources, listening to the arguments of both Jewish and Palestinian friends.

Aside from prayers for everyone, these haiku are the only things of substance I have to offer right now.
