Happy Haiga Day!

I participated in the latest Spark challenge as a writer. The poem below was my response to the work of a young artist. You can see the inspiration piece here.

Smoke obscures the reality.

The illustration
of human creativity
and factual narrative
is released from its
paper and board covers
only to disperse,
as ash-–the end
product of
incomplete combustion.

When the smoke clears…

someone will recollect
the novels,
the narratives,
the poetry,
the music,
and publish them anew
for untried sycophants
to claim as
collateral damage.

Smoke will obscure the reality.
