Dreaming of Change

Image credit: Link 

historic protest
tyrannical rule nears its end
a state's turning point

Image credit: Link

with fists tightly clenched
angry chants in unison
a loud cry for change

anger sows hatred
a never-ending cycle
humanity's bane

Very well written Bing Dear!

Just that we only do what we already know of- like blinded fools. I hope we get past such a situation soon!

Love xoxox

we give in to anger but mostly its useless. it harms both the persons.

wonderful haikus that brought out the core of this passion.

Such an intriguing contrast of words. Very much enjoyed the build and the build and the build and the truth within.

thnks for sharing it bing! :)

Love it that you were able to tie in the prompt with what is going on right now. So true.

Lu Ann February 8, 2011 at 8:03 AM  

It is so sad to see that human kind must get to the edge of pain, anger and poverty to raise its eyes to God... truly sad but truly true: WE NEED A CHANGE!



Anonymous February 8, 2011 at 9:04 AM  

So well said and put both in prose and words.



Nanka February 8, 2011 at 3:12 PM  

That was such a coincidence as our themes do match.

You have really done an excellent job here and loved the way you have narrated a small piece of history of a great place rich in heritage!!

Chim's World of Literature February 8, 2011 at 4:55 PM

Fantastic, Bing, and great photos too.

Amanda Moore February 9, 2011 at 12:46 PM  

Bing such a tragic way to gain control of their country and their lives I hope change comes quickly before more damage is done, great take on this!!!

Kavita February 11, 2011 at 3:46 AM  

Very rightly said, Bing!! Hatred and revenge.. they form a really vicious circle!!

If only people could learn to live and let live... (sigh)

A beautiful haiku set with a great message in it, my dear!!

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
