Om Mani Padme Hum

The prompt this week at Haiku Shuukan is Me purifies greed and possessions (hungry ghost realm)
Be sure to visit and read some of the great posts.

hungry ghost lie
enticing our desires
devouring souls

government reform
greed and possessions
tossed out the window

our slaughtered boys lay
in unmarked fields
to placate greed


  1. Such a poignant and necessary haiku series, Dolores. Greed does run amock slaughtering our boys and girls, innocent children and families as well as soldiers.

  2. Thank you for writing these - the greedy ghosts are murdering our kids, starving our people ... So well done, Dolores --

  3. Ah yes, sigh ... Greed is such a terrible aspect of our human nature, with its children of "Ignorance" and "Want" ... well written haiku!
