nine eleven haiku


Out of pristine blue
Two darts pierce proud country's hearts
Gasps to grasping hands

surviving pear tree
recovered from 2001, ground zero
replanted at 9/11 Memorial site

17 heartbeats etched for 'recuerda mi corazon,' exclusive home of

I didn't know about the pear tree... wonderful nature in the face of so much destruction. Your haiku is beautiful, Phil.
